From K-12 to major universities, 3D printing is the new rage. It has children and adults alike watching with awe as computer-generated images become tangible items right before their eyes. With 3D printing in education, Konica Minolta brings to your staff and students a renewed excitement in learning.
For K-12 schools and school districts, Konica Minolta brings an innovative new curriculum to students called STEAMtrax. Polar 3D's STEAMtrax combines engineering with 3D Printing technology from 3D Systems. Designed to be used in conjunction with 3D printers, each STEAMtrax lesson imbeds 3D design, printing and scanning technology into each lesson. All curriculums adhere to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Common Core and other state standards. Students are engaged in relevant learning scenarios that encourage the essential skill of problem solving, collaboration, communication, clear and critical thinking as well as developing core academic knowledge.
For Higher Education institutions, Konica Minolta's 3D System's CubePro printer is a great cost-effective, smaller capacity desktop printer to get your innovation center started. Along with 3D System's higher end ProJet series of printers, you can bring revolutionary concept development to your innovation center, staff and students. The uses for 3D printing are limitless in Higher Education — from biology and pre-med students printing anatomical parts to engineering and graphic design students making prototypes.
