A 3D printer can be used to teach science and math in two ways: when a teacher creates an accurate 3D model of a concept for students to handle, or to design a "starter set" model that students can then alter and use as the basis for explorations. The instructors will impart ideas for developing appropriate content of concepts ranging from kindergarten to grad school and will teach participants to use the free and open source 3D modeling program OpenSCAD. The class assumes participants already know the basics of using a 3D printer, from the UgotClass "Intro to 3D Printing" or equivalent experience. Recommended optional e‐book: Horvath and Cameron, 3D Printed Science Projects (Apress, 2016).

There has been a lot of excitement about the use of 3D printers in education, but educators can have trouble both getting started with the technology and figuring out what to do with it. This two‐class certificate covers both aspects, starting with how the technology works and then moving on to how to use it effectively. If participants already have 3D printers, the instructors will customize the class as much as possible so participants can follow along on the hardware they have. If a participant does not yet have access to a 3D printer, the instructors can help with helping participants define criteria to make decisions about appropriate hardware to buy. The intro class (recommended to be taken first) covers the entire 3D printing workflow with a focus on open source and free software. The market is somewhat fractured and different 3D printers vary somewhat in their operations there are not a lot of standards in the industry yet, but the instructors will guide participants through what the options are and where to learn the details of operation of their particular existing or planned hardware.

Creating a prototype of a product used to be a very expensive proposition. Now, however, with the availability of consumer‐level 3D printers and relatively easy‐to‐program custom electronics controlled by processors like the Arduino, it is possible to prototype many types of products yourself. This certificate consists of two classes; either one can be taken first. 3D printing can be used to create product mockups quickly, and is particularly useful for things like seeing how something feels to a user, seeing how a piece will fit with other existing pieces, and the like. It is still very difficult to scan an existing object and create a copy, and the class will talk about where the technologies stand for the areas that are not easy (yet). "Maker" electronics include microprocessors like the Arduino, which have a free and open source ecosystem of software and compatible sensors that will allow you to create interactive prototypes that can detect motion, sound, light, and so on, or control moving parts. There are even sewable versions of these processors that can be integrated into garments or other fabric products. Taken together, these two classes will give you the skills to get started with these two aspects of low‐cost prototyping, and give you an idea of what is possible and where to learn even more skills going forward.
