“ The US Congress funded NASA’s five-year initiative to promote interest in learning of space science and encourage young students to pursue careers in the STEM field. NASA’s Heliophysics Education Consortium partnered with UNT’s Institute for the Integration of Technology into Teaching and Learning will set up programs to further this goal. Professor Gerald Knezek and his student team are investing their time in a research project to find ways to educate younger generations on the importance of the STEM field for future space travel and to advance climate change research and prevention. “The argument is no longer whether climate change was caused by humans or by nature,” Knezek said. “The argument is what we’re going to do to ensure our survival.””

“NASA has a bunch of its 3D models up on GitHub, and if you didn't know about it before, you do now. It's a ridiculously large download, at over one and a half jiggabytes, but it's full of texture”

"Across the Western hemisphere, it is not hard to find 3D printer manufacturers or distributors specializing in education products and services supplying 3D printers and ancillary products. Neither is it difficult to find inspiring student stories within this geographical region of how 3D printing has transformed their learning experience and inspired them to create original and well-thought through applications of the technology. This is all very positive momentum… but there’s something really important missing. One vital group within the education equation gets frequently overlooked — the teachers. The people that are directly tasked with preparing students — our children — for the modern workplace. There are fantastic teaching pioneers out on the frontline, excited by 3D printing themselves, and transmitting this passion into their classrooms. Moreover, increasing numbers of schools are buying into 3D technology for the classroom and the potential for facilitating learning activities across the curriculum. But for teachers, there has to be a purpose behind the potential. Where do they go to find that purpose, particularly if they are not familiar with the 3D printing ecosystem themselves; which, let’s face it, many of them will not be?"
“ Via Juandon La conexión recíproca entre la gestión del conocimiento y las plataformas de colaboración social estaría claro para la mayoría. Pero ¿qué pasa con una conexión entre la gestión del conocimiento (PKM) y de los grandes datos? Wikipedia define los grandes datos como:"Big Data es un término amplio para conjuntos de datos tan grande…”

“ Connecting STEM with social studies and literature, students discover meaningful collaboration. GUEST COLUMN | by Kimberly Greene Cross-curricular? Critical thinking? How do these rather different educational concepts work together, and why should we want them to be a part of our teaching practice? Let’s start with critical thinking, a skill we must consider to be…”

“We recently came across a particular white paper written by Professor Dr. Anne Bamford, Director of the International Research Agency, discussing the importance and benefits of 3D in the classroom. As you all know, here at EON we are HUGE proponents of incorporating interactive 3D technologies within education, and Dr. Bamford's research best explains why doing”

“Digitally modeling objects from real life has just become easier.Tech innovation company InstruMMents has unveiled a new functionality to their 01 portable dimension scanner that allows you to capture the 3D curves of any surface. Logging in to the Pro App, users can then track, share and export the curves into key 3D formats, allowing you to quickly recreate any desired object in 3D.”

Rapid prototyping provides the opportunity for a manufacturer to deliver the product faster and more effectively than before, even including visualizing the design. The designer can create the model by using computer-aided-design (CAD) software and then submit to a printer to produce a tangible part. This process of constructing objects by printing its cross-sections layers is known as 3D printing.
“3D printers aren't as common a household item as the inkjet (unless you're a 30-something creative type living in a loft in San Francisco or Brooklyn), but 3D printing is slowly becomin”
