We also wanted to organize a 3D printing competition for primary school students. The competition was held last year in the autumn and the results were published during the RoboAI week. (in Finnish)

Senior lecturer Mirka Leino and her team prepared a good amount of new teaching material for 3D printing. Materials in English are available on the e-learning platform of the project. Video lectures for printing competition were modified and published. They could be used in comprehensive schools. Read more about teaching 3D modelling and printing. (In Finnish)

SAMK Robotics Academy participated in producing the materials. The Academy filmed and edited three series of videos about how to assembly a Prusa 3D printer. Watch the videos in English on Youtube on the learning platform 3DPRINT DnB Prusa Assembly - YouTube.

Based on the project results we also planned and implemented a new course called 3D printing from theory to practice (3 ECTS) for SAMK students (in Finnish).
