Why 3D Printing X STEAM Education?

  • XYZ STEAM is a 3D printing curriculum that covers subject areas in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM). It’s designed for K-12 educators and students to use in the classroom.
  • Print stuff like molecular models or even the whole solar system with your students. Using 3D-printed visual aids helps you illustrate difficult concepts, create engaging STEAM lessons that enhance student involvement.
  • Bring an added dimension to your STEAM classes. 3D design and printing create ample opportunities for hands-on learning. Students get to apply what they’ve learned and this reinforces their understanding of STEAM concepts.
  • Are your classrooms future-ready? 3D printing helps students learn and develop transferrable skills like problem-solving and design thinking, which prepares them for future careers in STEAM.
