In this session Ian will showcase some amazing ways 3D printers can be used to support science education. 3D printers have become increasingly common in Libraries and CTS programs but rarely find their way into Science classes or pedagogy. During this talk Ian will provide a quick 'how-to' guide to create your own 3D tools from scratch or through a database of pre-existing templates. Learn how to use a 3D printer to create amazing science tools as opposed to colour toys. From spectroscopes to rockets, the possibilities are limitless!
