Prepare for the Solar Eclipse through 3D Printing Technology

Event Date: 
Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Join us on June 13th as we launch into our journey through the world of 3D Printing and NASA science using authentic resources connected to the sun, heliophysics, and the upcoming solar eclipse.

The virtual workshop will open with an introduction to 3D Printing and how a NASA Makerspace has evolved the way that NASA engineers work and learn. Joined by panelists Patrick Haas, NASA Instrument Engineer, Troy Cline and Lani Sasser, NASA STEM Innovation Lab Director and Assistant, we will hear how 3D printing can be applied to the upcoming solar eclipse, while benefiting from the advice and tips provided by these experts in the field.

Connecting the fabrication and development of new 3D products to a process is important to ensure that the products actually address the problems or challenges we’ve attempted to solve. We will be hearing from Lisa Work, Design Thinking Trainer, who will share how the use of the Design Thinking process can help to develop rapid prototypes that get to a solution that answers the question “How might we…”

Get ready for some hands-on action, as Ben Smith and Jared Mader, ISTE faculty, lead you through 3D product creation using the tools of 3D printing like Tinkercad and Cura, as well as how you can adapt the activities shared by our panelists to your own audiences using free online resources. Some of these free resources are located at the NASA STEM Innovation Lab’s Online training content library, where participants will learn how to access resources to support their own use of 3D printing.

We hope you can join us in your quest to connect your learners to the world of 3D Printing and the Solar Eclipse!
