Greetings. We are a 3D printing organisation and engage with Schools for installation of 3D Printing labs. & 3D education. I begin with a few questions. Are people missing out on the 3D printing advantage? Are they feeling left behind in STEM education? Are we not going to teach our students what US & EU students have already learnt? If your answers to any of the above is yes, it’s time you get to 3D printing.
3D printing is revolutionizing the way we create physical objects. McKinsey Global Institute has estimated that 3d printing could generate economic impact of $79 billion per year by 2025 with a 28% CAGR. The huge growth rates are a direct result of its applications for prototyping and mass production in a number of industries, thanks to an ever increasing list of 3d printable materials. The World Economic Forum describes it as one of the four pillars of the 4th Industrial Revolution alongside AR, VR & AI, big data, block chains etc. Many countries completely missed the 1st two industrial revolutions (steam & petrol engines) and partially benefitted in the 3rd (electronics / computers). Now can we afford to not, or just partially participate in the 4th Industrial Revolution?
The participation is enhanced when you increase your knowledge of 3D Printing. We have unlimited potential. Combining this potential with 3D printing and you create a powerful EdTech learning environment. 3D printing empowers us to embrace innovative technology, entrepreneurship and allows you to achieve new levels of thinking both creatively & pragmatically. Imaginations will be sparked and confidences will be built. It’s a tool to enrich problem-solving skills, patience, persistence and move away from rote learning.
Our ultimate goal is to help you:
• Increase your planning, critical thinking, reasoning skills & experiential learning
• Develop strong computational thinking, communication and collaboration skills
• Practice visualization, 3D CAD and decision making
• Learn the importance of 3D design mind set and iteration in the design cycle
• Know how to use a 3D Printer, how to choose appropriate tools and when to use this technology
We at I Print My Things, are pioneers in taking the 3D printing technology to schools. We are associated with leading schools, such as Indian School Muscat, Jayshree Periwal (Jaipur), Pathways School (Baliawas & Aravali in Gurgaon), Shri Ram School, DPSi, GD Goenka, DAV, Kunskapsskolan International School, Delhi Public School Faridabad, Shalom Presidency, Meenakshi Public School, Bloom Public School, Scottish High etc. Here either we have installed 3D printers, 3D pens, 3D scanners etc or undertaken 3D printing trainings. 3D Printing is spreading at the school level engaging students & teachers in the field of manufacturing, designing and product development. It supplements STEM / EdTech activities such as robotics, IoT, electronics too.
Our Bharat Ratna (Highest Indian Civilian Honour), Prof. CNR Rao, has said ‘90% of our educational institutions have outdated curriculum.’ Now school leader’s too can make a difference in the current academic session, by adopting 3D printing, enlightening the students, bringing them closer to what’s the latest, cutting edge and beneficial. A 3D printing enabled school is a big differentiator over other schools. Incorporating it in the curriculum also, makes a school truly global, world or an international school. 3D printing further strengthens one's position and takes us further inroads of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
