From time to time I get requests to explain about 3D printing in schools for different publications. Well this happened a couple of weeks ago from someone in Geelong. Having never heard of Geelong I had to do a quick bit of Internet research…. It’s near Melbourne, Australia!
So I jotted down a few of my thoughts, observations and experiences and emailed them off to the guys at Barwon Copying Solutions (BCS)… And then promptly forgot everything about it. It was a very pleasant surprise when I received an email this week with a copy of the page from the Geelong Business News magazine.
And what a brilliant article they have produced, background information and lots of in depth explanations about the use of 3D printing in schools… And some great quotes from me too! It feels “really cool” that what we are doing with 3D printing using our Bits from Bytes machines here in Clevedon School is potentially having an influence on students in Oz.
With the kind permission of the BCS I have posted a copy here. Many thanks to the “guys from Geelong” Paul and Sue.
