3D Modelling and printing applied to elementary and secondary schools
3D Modeling and Printing
3D Models, Modeling software and 3D Printers
3D printing allows product/industrial designers to create prototypes in a few hours instead of weeks using traditional methods. The cost to create a prototype can exceed €10,000 when we consider the use of tools necessary for processes such as injection molding. with the impression 3D prototypes can be achieved at a fraction of the cost.
Work sessions in the Professional Computer Courses (Secondary)
The workshops that took place within the Professional Computer Science and Computer Courses involved 3 high school classes (see Figure 12 below). Within the scope of these courses the following projects were carried out:
– Development of 3D scenarios for games (with Blender);
– Implementation of the Farmbot Control System with RaspberriPy;
– Construction of a programmable DIY clock;
– Drone construction and programming;
– Construction of arcade game console;
– Construction of Robot with ultrasonic sensors.
1st vegetable garden set up at the school
During almost the whole day of Friday, all classes of the school participated in the STEAM activities organized by InovLabs. The component of Electronics, Robotics and implementation of sensors in the garden space were the most worked activities in this school. The project “Oeiras Innovation Labs” also supported the activities of the project “Aqui há horta”, and the vegetables produced in the school space allow today to recurrently supply the canteen with fresh vegetables to feed the students.
