3-D Printing comes to The Knox School of Santa Barbara!


3-D printing is being explored in The Knox School’s Technology course, which is offered to students from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Within the Technology course, students are exposed to themes such as circuitry, electrical theory, direct verses alternating current, circuit design, modeling, robots, mechanical systems, static electricity, voltage, amperage, and wattage, through hands-on projects. In the 3D printing and modeling class, students learn about the inner workings of a 3D printer and will be designing basic models in 3D using programming language. This course will also teach students about the design process, motion control, 3D modeling, unit conversions, resource management, basic math and troubleshooting. By the end of this series of classes, students will be able to print out their own unique designs on a 3D printer as their culminating project!
