Several Maine STEM Partnership teachers presented how they use 3D printers in their classrooms as the 3D-Printing Expo at Thomas College in Waterville, ME on April 27, 2018. From using 3D printed cars in physics, to making bubble wands, and creating new bug species John McKechnie of Ellsworth High School, Karen Fream of East End Community School, Gina Jandreau of Madawaska Elementary School, and David Track of Vassalboro Community School provided tips and tricks to using 3D Printing in a meaningful way in the STEM classroom.
They all did a great job!!
