  • Student Comments “It was empowering to be in control of something so innovative. I almost felt like I was part of making history.”—Ellen “This exercise was my favorite because we were actually able to make a product that we could touch and hold.”— Michelle “It allows consumers to be creators rather than buyers. I think this is one of the coolest aspects of 3D printing because we no longer have to rely on corporations for all of our needs.”—Mike “There was a feeling of accomplishment and pride that came with making the cookie cutter.”—Rachel
  • Definition: Learning by Making “Learning by making involves an interactive and hands-on process in which students learn through the design and creation of new objects.”—Rindfleisch & Sachdev 2013

  • Business Implications
  • Challenges 1. Most students still haven’t heard of 3D printing. 2. Less than 1% have ever seen a 3D printer in operation. 3. Even fewer have the skills to create their own designs. 4. Few schools offer hands-on 3D printing resources.
  • An Easy Question “If you could buy anything, what would you buy?”
  • ATough Question “If you could make anything, what would you make?”
  • Opportunities 1. Access to 3D printers is rapidly expanding outside of academia. 2. 3D design software is quickly becoming more accessible. 3. Contact with 3D printing is highly engaging and often addicting.
  • Eric Chapman
  • Engage with MakerLab 1. Corporate sponsorship opportunities 2. Faculty & student research projects 3. Students available for jobs & internships 4. 3D design & printing services 5. Guest speaker opportunities
