I am a high school teacher from the UK and creator of www.learnbylayers.com a curriculum for teachers looking to start 3D printing with their classes. Learnbylayers is a complete fully planned curriculum ready to use that is mapped against national education standards. It is currently taught in over 60 schools around the world to over 40,000 students and provides over 150 resources to teach 3D printing in the classroom. Teachers testimonials on the lessons include; "User friendly, easy to follow, clearly explained and good links. Ideal resource to support your delivery. As a relative newcomer to 3D Printing this has certainly helped my understanding." "Lessons are engaging and simple to follow, especially for teachers who have no experience in 3D printing! Lessons can be adapted and edited but in my opinion, they don’t need to be! Everything is already included and ready to go as they include detailed lesson plans and all the basics of an outstanding lesson (observation ready!)" I also work with the National STEM learning teaching teachers the principles of 3D printing in education. I have successfully integrated 3D printers into my lessons since 2012 and have seen the amazing results that this technology brings to lessons.
