Thanks to a collaboration between RiSE Center and the Perloff Family Foundation, the Maine STEM Partnership (MSP) is able to provide opportunities for teachers to use a 3D printer in their classroom. The goal of this collaboration is to bring 3D printers into Maine schools for use to support learning within the scope and sequence of science and math instruction currently supported by the MSP. We provide training on how to design and print objects using the printer, access to community-built instructional resources that utilize the 3D printer, and ongoing collaborative opportunities for teachers to discuss ideas and classroom successes
Professional Development Opportunities
Collaborative teams will meet periodically during the school year to share experiences and outcomes and to plan future improvements and implementations for the instructional resources.
