3D Printing Curriculum

PrintLab Classroom is an online platform of 3D printing lesson plans combined with a certified teacher training course. Our approach is to take inspiration from the innovative uses of 3D printing in industry and bring these through to education. The curriculum is aligned to a range of standards across different subject areas and challenges students to design assistive technology, reusable packaging prototypes, hands-free virus solutions and more.
