Editorial Reviews

Review

Whether you are new to 3D printing or an experienced maker, the Invent to Learn Guide to 3D Printing in the Classroom is an essential project-based resource for integrating 3D printing in classrooms.  Designed as lessons built on NGSS and CCSS competencies, the 18 projects provide a wealth of learning opportunities that are perfect for students and teachers alike.

Carl Heine, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy


This is a MUST HAVE book for any educator interested in 3D printing in the classroom.  This book takes the next step in integrating 3D printing across the curriculum.

Todd Whitlock, CEO Standard For Success & District Administrator North Daviess Community Schools


A key idea--supported throughout this book--is that students are not just 'doing' mathematics and science, they are actively engaged as mathematicians and scientists in their own right. As such, when they encounter difficulties, they need to tiptoe back through their thinking by revisiting their designs and seeing what bugs in their processes they need to fix.
A 'must have' for those interested in 3D printing with students!

Peter Skillen, Educator, Ontario College of Teachers


The Invent to Learn 3D Printing in the Classroom: Recipes for Success is an effective guide for anyone who would like a step-by-step tutorial that covers all the important aspects of 3D printing, including differences in the machines themselves, the printing materials, and the software options necessary to create a wide variety of projects.  For anyone who has thought about exploring 3D printing, but thinks the software is daunting, these "recipes" will have you creating like a master chef in no time.

Roger Wagner, developer of Hyperstudio


There is a rapidly growing interest in schools for 3D printing, however until now there have been few resources for teachers in the way of instruction or professional development to support full adoption of 3D printing.  David, Norma and Sara's book does an excellent job of introducing educators and students to 3D printing and how it can support current curriculum as well as the new Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.
John Westrum,  Vice President, Afinia
