Survey: Operationalising 3D Printing as Part of STEM-related Classroom Activities in Queensland Middle Schools
BACKGROUND TO THIS STUDY:
In STEM-related classroom activities, particularly relevant educational design projects, students have hurdles in applying prototype scale and measurement into CAD modelling for 3D printing. There is still a lack of research on the challenges of CAD modelling and the use of 3D printers in formal and/or informal STEM education. This study will explore the current and future challenges and opportunities of STEM-related classroom activities utilising 3D printing in the Queensland education system. The findings will provide recommendations for operationalising 3D printing in implementing design-led integrated STEM programs for Queensland teachers and educators in middle schooling.
YOUR ROLE IN THIS STUDY:
Your participation will involve the completion of an online survey about operationalising 3D printing as part of STEM-related classroom activities. It is anticipated this survey will take on average 20 minutes to complete. I would very much appreciate your participation in this research! And I will offer a free workshop about ‘Design for 3D Printing’ to the school where five or more eligible participants complete the survey.
