3D printing pen workshop

3D printing pens

Nowadays, it is impossible to imagine society without the 3d printer. This technology has many applications, for example in construction or healthcare. It also changes the way we look at certain things. When a part used to be missing, you had to order a completely new package. Nowadays, you can simply have that part printed. It is important for young people to know something about the process of 3d printing. The 3d printing pen is a relatively new phenomenon that allows you to experience the process of a 3d printer for yourself. Like the printer, filament is melted so that it becomes malleable. When it cools, it hardens and this way you can use it to create three-dimensional subjects.
Students will invent, design and make 3d subjects in this challenging workshop.
Spatial awareness and motor skills are further developed in this process.
A particularly fun workshop for all secondary school students!
