3D Printing in the Classroom – A Schools Handbook for Northern Ireland has been published in partnership with Northern Ireland’s Creative Learning Centres and FabLab NI to provide teachers and school leaders with impartial guidance and inspiration around the 3D printing in the Classroom.


As 3D printers become ever more important in business and enterprise, schools have also sought to utilize them as a tool which takes creativity, design and IT skills and applies them to learning throughout the curriculum.

This new resource provides schools with key information around what 3D printing is and how it is impacting upon the workplace, before looking at its potential role in Education and providing a series of subject-specific exemplars of ways in which 3D printing can support learning across the curriculum.

There is also a guide to selecting and buying a 3D printer and a series of case studies from schools across the world to equip teachers with the essential knowledge required to deliver innovative creative learning in their classrooms.

The Handbook is free to download below.
