We're investigating how elementary schools can join the 3-D printing revolution. We want our kids to grown up as creative "makers" feeling as comfortable thinking, designing and printing in 3-D as they do in color 2-D.
The slogan of the "maker movement" is Rip-Mod-Fab. Rip means "scan", Mod means "modify" and "Fab" or make means print in 3-D"
From time to time, we'll offer an afterschool class in 3-D printing.
For now, you can learn about 3-D printing by visiting the websites and watching the videos below.
