Summer Leadership Institute: 3D Printing and Design
Join our expert staff for this week-long, highly immersive learning opportunity to learn about the exciting new technology of 3-D printing and how it can amplify creativity and core content in your learning community. Participating teachers will start the week by constructing their own IMADE3D JellyBOX2 3D printer. Once the machines are up and running, the group will become comfortable with the use of the hardware through explorative tasks based on mathematical reasoning, measurement, human centered design and cultural connections.
We encourage schools to send an additional staff member to take part in this workshop. Investing in multiple staff members is an effective way adoption rate and dissemination of the technology’s use throughout the rest of the school or institution.
Course Extension: Teachers who participate in the Summer Institute Program will gain access to a series of three half-day sessions scheduled in the Fall and Winter of 2020. These sessions will be held at the Education Studio and broadcast via webinar for those who are unable to attend in person. Topics will be selected in order to best fit the needs of attendees of the June session as they introduce the technology to their learning communities during the 2020-21 school year.
