“3D printing belongs in the classroom”

Message from the Education forum at Rapid.Tech 3D: The development of additive manufacturing (AM) skills must be integrated into the school curriculum.

Additive manufacturing plays an existential role for a high-tech country like Germany. “In order for us to maintain our lead when it comes to working with this key technology and to make the best use of the opportunities it offers, more is needed than just the industry and its researchers. We need to start working with additive manufacturing much earlier and begin teaching students about it, as well as giving them hands-on experience in schools. 3D printing belongs in the classroom. We are using Rapid.Tech 3D as an opportunity to raise public awareness of AM in education in a dedicated forum at the specialist conference to demonstrate ways for it to be integrated into the curricula,” emphasises Michael Eichmann, chairman of the specialist advisory board.
