Jason Yeung, Co-Founder at PrintLab, is excited about offering educators a unique new platform for teaching 3D printing. “Additive manufacturing is exponentially growing and is a vital tool across a range of industries. This means we must prepare the next generation for their future careers by addressing the widening skills gap.
He added, “After a great deal of research with teachers around the world, we found that within 3D printing curriculum, there is a distinct need for teacher training and content that is applicable to core subject areas. Teachers require an easy to use, engaging solution which makes their challenge of inspiring young people possible. PrintLab Classroom achieves this by providing a simple and comprehensive lesson package, developed alongside teachers and with an ever-expanding number of lessons”.
