3D Printers have been around for atleast 25 years now. Reduced barriers to cost over the years (thousands of dollars in 2013) has meant that they are much more affordable for a classroom and guess what?! Mr. McPhee has one! There are many reasons why trying 3D printing with students is an awesome idea. Students enthusiastically use logical, spatial and design thinking along with math skills to create cool yet useful...(so perfect to show off on our front counter display for Hallowe'en) stuff like .... THIS PUMPKIN ! Just in case you were not able to make it in to see it...here it is!
