Get yours today!As research compiled by the Global Skills Index (2015) reveals that engineering and technology talent in the UK threatens productivity and economic expansion in the face of global competition, there can be no doubt that a concerted push is sorely needed to encourage more of Britain’s youth to opt for the sciences at GCSE and A-Level, with a view to furnishing careers in engineering, biotech and the sciences. The use of 3D printing in schools is an ideal gateway to bringing to life the possibilities of invention and creativity within the minds of students, in order to close this skills gap and ensure future UK innovation and productivity.
To date in the UK, use of 3D design and printing technology has been largely restricted to Design and Technology (DT) classrooms. However, UK schools are on the verge of a breakout moment as they come to realise there is considerable potential for 3D printers to be used within a range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. The potential extends beyond the physical demonstration of product creation but also as a tool to integrate learning between the STEM subjects by linking shared and compatible scientific or mathematical concepts.
In line with the visual environment and stimuli that today’s ‘millennial’ generation are used to via their smartphones and digital platforms, the immediacy of 3D printing satisfies their desire for immediate outcomes and results. Today’s students now expect to be able to design on a computer-aided design programme (CAD) and to then view their creation in its actuality within the hour. 3D printing achieves this with ease with the key advantage being there is no break in the momentum of the creative or problem-solving flow. Students can now touch and see how their first prototype functions with the ability to make immediate revisions until they ‘get it right.’
By challenging students to devise prints that have a true function in everyday life, this can motivate valuable innovation. Use of 3D design and technology in the classroom can help foster the creative and analytical thinking they will need as future professionals.
