Afinia 3D announced 3D Printing Project-based Learning STEM
CHANHASSEN, MN, Oct 12, 2016 – Afinia 3D has announced the availability of ten 3D Printing Project-based Learning STEM Kits. These kits will allow educators to incorporate 3D printing into their curricula or create an entire 3D printing session. The kits cover a wide range of subject matter: from printing a Mini Boombox Kit, to a Balance-Bot Warrior, to a Solar-Powered Battery Charger.
Afinia 3D’s vice president, John Westrum notes, “We have been a leading supplier of desktop 3D printers to educators since 2012 and are continually adding to our educational offerings. Our Project-based Learning STEM Kits will allow educators to take their curricula to the next level by reinforcing their existing concepts via 3D printing.”
The STEM Kits can be purchased at store.afinia.com in various quantities or through Afinia’s channel of education resellers. Single kits include a student workbook and larger quantity purchases (available in packs of 6, 12, or 30) include a student workbook for each kit, and a single teacher guide.
“Educator’s realize that students learn by a number of means, including visually and kinesthetically. Reaching the visual and kinesthetic learners can be challenging, especially when teaching math or science,” remarks Westrum. “Our 3D Printing Project-based Learning STEM Kits allow educators to bridge the gap for those students and increase their success. Hands-on learning can really engage students who may be having a difficult time grasping concepts.”
