Check out a few sample lesson plans for MakerBot Educators. Each lesson makes getting ready for the days lesson easy, with required preparation & materials.
Expand your weather patterns lesson plan with a 3D printed structural design challenge. Students will design, print, and test a structure capable of withstanding extreme weather and flooding in a mock weather environment.
The Cloud Types project covers an Earth Science lesson while teaching 3D design and 3D printing skills. Students will learn how to turn a paper sketch into a 3D model and 3D print the final design.
In this project, students will create or modify an Archimedes screw in Onshape to transport material from lower ground to higher ground. The students’ task is to observe the sample printed screw design, and create a more efficient screw design that fits into the supplied case.
