Material Science Taught To The High Schoolers with 3d Technology
3D technology can be used in various potential ways. It is also becoming a prime subject for learning in many countries. Well, it is used in hospitals by the surgeons and also by the researchers to create different human organs. Also, for the medical students, this is something that is not only interesting to learn but it is also highly resourceful. It helps the doctors to prepare for the surgery.
The big question is that how is it done? Well, this technology can easily create duplicate copies of almost everything. Thus, for the learning surgeons, it is the best way to understand human body parts and perform surgery for practice.
The scientists in the Barcelona Institute of Material Science have been using additive manufacturing to help students in learning well. Also, there was a 3-day course in which school teachers were introduced to 3d printing and how the objects created with its help can assist them in better teaching. Additive manufacturing makes it very convenient for the students to understand even the most complex things in the world.
The participants of the course got different components that were to be left unfinished for the students to complete them. It was the part of the curriculum. The structures that were given to the participants included crystallographic components such as diamond shapes, cubes, and honeycomb.
In this way, 3d printing has been helping the schools and the medical students to understand easily. These are the replicas of real life objects that look very alike. Also, this technology has made students question and dig for the answers. In the process, it has increased the productivity of the students.
