It is rightly said that “Necessity is the mother of Invention” and living in the 21st century we can not expect our children to achieve extraordinary milestones by subjecting them to the old conventional techniques of learning.
Therefore, with the growing advent of technological advancement, facilitating education with better tools to broaden the horizon of student’s thinking capacity is the need of the hour. There are several academic concepts which can be difficult to comprehend with bare imagination,, hence to eradicate vagueness and encourage better vision and imagination 3D printers have been introduced in schools and colleges
3D printers are one of a kind as they possess the potential to revolutionize the way we create or look at physical objects. Apart from its capability of enabling school students to grab concepts with better comprehension and better retention, it’s caliber to develop 3d structures for college projects, research purpose, work in industries like engineering and architecture cannot be understated.
Countries like China and Russia have already planned to install these printers in schools, so as to introduce children to it at an elementary level Not just schools they have attempted to include them at every level of education.
Scientists defense organization and various other sectors have been taking constructive advantage of 3d printers.
There are uncountable benefits of 3d printing education,
- Aids Imagination and creativity
It enables students to think creatively and construct something concrete and physical out of their imagination. It empowers them to break the barriers of usual conceptualization and helps them to broaden their thinking capacity.
- Inculcates Brainstorming
Learning by doing is a thing! 3D printing education provides children the freedom to brainstorm and to explore a large range of ideas to develop a physical object out of their thoughts.
- Inculcates learning by committing mistakes
Due emphasis on trial and error method based learning is given as we all know, we learn by committing mistakes and the only way to eradicate them is by practicing over and over again.
- An affordable way to run a test trial
It helps students to better evaluate their products and ideas in their physical state. This is best suitable for architecture students and engineering students, they can observe loopholes in the buildings or the products that they have designed to construct.
Not only students but these printers are also adopted by government officials, research organizations and multinational organizations to improve their services.
- Inculcating technology friendly students for future
There is no looking back in the future, technology will grow more advance by adopting such tech-savvy teaching methods we are preparing them for the future. we are preparing them for future capabilities.
