The purpose of my presentation is to show how educators can integrate TinkerCAD in a variety of lessons and subjects. I will expand on other possible lesson ideas and where teachers can access these resources. TinkerCAD is a fairly easy program to learn, however 3D printing can be intimidating. I will explain how 3D printers work and how to use them, again, pointing educators to valuable resources.
I will also include challenges that we met during these lessons and how we were able to overcome them and create a successful product.
TinkerCAD.com is a great resource that includes tutorials, lessons, and support from the company. The program is web-based making it easy to access on many devices.
Thingiverse.com and other similar websites will help spark ideas for 3D printing lessons and educators can use created lessons that have been executed by others.
