Fabricating the future: 3-D printing molds new K-12 STEM model

DESCRIPTION

Visionaries like Glen Bull, a professor of instructional technology at the University of Virginia's (UVA) Curry School of Education, are using 3-D printing systems to change the way teachers present science concepts and, in turn, how students learn and retain the material.  In a lab school, elementary school students and teachers are invited to use engineering design and fabrication to teach and learn science and math concepts.
