Tomorrow’s engineers, designers and problem solvers deserve every tool available to build a brilliant future. 3D printing fuels limitless creativity when students get to see, hold and test their ideas in real space. Bringing 3D printing into the classroom exposes learners to the same cuttng-edge technologies they’ll encounter in their careers. It gives them a jump-start on tomorrow’s challenges.

Using 3D printers in the classroom can transform the learning experience dramatically, it means:
Engineering and design students can now print out prototypes of their creations.
Architecture students could easily print out 3D models of their design.
History classes could print out historic artifacts for closer examination.
Graphic design students creating 3D versions of their artwork.
And many more…
By transforming the way we teach, we are capable of creati ng an amazing learning experience for the students. 3D printing not only changes the way we teach and learn, it also has significant impact in every industry. Consumer electronics are using it to prototype, more engineering or R&D related companies are using it to do new product development. Most importantly, companies are adopting this technology at an accelerated pace and this is the driving force behind the growth of 3D printing.
Why 3D Printing for Education?
An Effective Way to Enrich Learning
As mentioned above, nothing conveys an idea better than holding it in your hand. 3D printing is an effective way to enrich learning in virtually any discipline. To support the adoption, Stratasys has launched 3D Printing curriculum to match projects at associate, undergraduate and graduate levels.
Boost Student Career Opportunities
Students can boost their career opportunities by showing potential employers precision 3D models built on-site at their academic institutions. Starting their portfolios before graduation offers students the advantages of both the 3D printing know-how and the creative problem solving that are prized by great firms.
Advantage For The Employment Market
With Stratasys you give your students a key advantage in the employment market. The same Stratasys 3D Printers in use at many academic and technical institutions are also used by your students’ future employers at leading design and manufacturing businesses around the world.
