3D printing is an established industrial technology used for prototyping and manufacturing products and components across a range of industries. It was a real opportunity for our pupils to try it because we have many applications in different areas of everyday life to manage. So, the teacher showed the steps of the project to realize the 3D object with the software on computer. French and Slovak students had to use it to prepare “the wheel of boat” as a final result.
Students made themselves an object from a workplan. It was a good moment for pupils to understand the application and potential of this new type of technology which will be important in helping to prepare them for their professional life in which similar technologies will gain increasingly common place.
