How Turning Math Into a Maker Workshop Can Bring Calculations to Life - Mind/Shift

How Turning Math Into a Maker Workshop Can Bring Calculations to Life - Mind/Shift | Technology Resources for K-12 Education | Scoop.it
It might have been the banana piano. Or perhaps the bongos, made from lemons that students had plucked from the citrus tree at school. Elizabeth Little, who teaches middle school math and science, doesn’t know exactly which of the hands-on projects she introduced to her remedial math class turned the class around. But by the end of the school year, all her math students, not just those needing extra support, were clamoring for more math.

How did this happen?

3D Printed Robots You Can Print, Build or Buy | All3DP | Technology Resources for K-12 Education | Scoop.it
Fancy a 3D printed robot for your home? Here’s a list of the best 3D printed robots you can print in one go, assemble or even buy as a kit.



Robots! We just love them: 3D printing and robots are a match made in mechanical heaven. So, we’ve made a short list on the best 3D printed robot projects you can find out there. This list is divided into two parts.

Working programmable 3D printable robots that are programmable, move and actually do things. They usually have to be assembled, which takes some basic knowledge of electronics and 3D printing. Their “brains” usually are powered by an Arduino, Raspberry Pi or other microcomputers. Start right here.
Printable 3D printable robots (without a function) for your shelf, desk, etc. They can be 3D printed in several parts or one go. Jump here to see them.
