3D Printing Chemical Structures: Lesson Plan

By 3D printing and having a tangible object, students can better visualise and understand the molecular world

Today we'd like to share with you the newest upload to the PrintLab Classroom Lesson Portal - 3D Printing Chemical Structures!




In this 3 lesson project, students will learn how to design, edit and 3D print chemical structures using free software. The project involves an introduction to atoms and molecules before students split up into teams. Each team will be allocated a different molecule to research before 3D modelling and 3D printing the chemical structure.





By 3D printing and having a tangible object, students can better visualise and understand the molecular world and in the final lesson of the project, each group will present their 3D printed model along with their research.

In the below video you can see the full lesson process. If you'd like to learn more about PrintLab Classroom and to try a free lesson, simply click here. By signing up to the free lesson you'll also be in with a chance of winning a 3D printer for your school!
