Getting Started with Makerspaces and 3D Printing – VSTE13

Makerspace is an idea that students can learn by making.

Here is a video of my Getting Started with Makerspaces and 3D Printing session from the VSTE13 conference. Presentation slides as a pdf and Keynote. (There are some short videos in the presentation.)

The presentation itself begins at around 15:30. Participants started the session by playing with 3D printed math and education related manipulatives, Cubelets, Little Bits, Bendaroos, LEDs and batteries. The bell ringer was a challenge to design an object using the Bendaroos.
