Thingiverse: 3D Printer Creations

Thingiverse is a free website for you to share, make, and discover things made using a 3D printer. 3D printers represent an emerging technology seen in today's school classrooms. Some of these companies that make these 3D printers are currently offering teachers training in how to use them and provide them with technical support for educational use. (Yes, our local high school has a 3D Printer in the classroom for the teachers and students to use to create 3D models).

That's a good idea to share with other educators/institutions what students are printing with their 3D Printer. I'll talk with Angela tomorrow. Having iPads in their classrooms already makes it easier for them to hyperlink to 3D Printer websites. I did not reveal their company source because I worried about the 3D Printer Company being inundated with too many inquiries about their educational program

The Teacher Education Board notes that if a 3D printer is available at your institution, this site would be useful for sharing and learning about materials that can be "printed." The site allows the user to provide feedback and comments about the materials available.
