Announcing the Create to Educate Lesson Plan Contest Winners!
Educating the next generation of makers is among the most important challenges in the 3D printing community, and the Create to Educate Lesson Plan Contest included an impressive number of high-quality entries. There can be just 3 winners so follow along until the end to find out who won! Special thanks to our partners, MatterHackers & Ultimaker, for sponsoring this challenge.
Neutral Spine Teaching Aid by jakejake
Most educational environments aren’t conducive to good posture, and jakejake brings awareness to this issue with the Neutral Spine Teaching Aid. The judges were blown away by jakejake’s presentation and you should absolutely check out his lesson plan.
Crumple Zone Crash Test Car by rmorrill
Rmorrill’s Crumpe Zone Crash Test is a great spin on the common egg drop experiment. This makes for an especially engaging lesson and can be used as a simple primer in 3D design.
Building a DNA Chain by Mario Melero
Several DNA Chain designs are available but Mario made a number of improvements in design and versatility with this entry. Use Mario’s design to create accurate representations of DNA strands.
Modeling Topography and Erosion with 3D Printing by Robert Hemlich
The first place winner is Robert Hemlich with his incredibly clever Topography and Erosion design. This makes use of several layers of colored filament as well as a filler of PVA that slowly ‘erodes’ revealing the layers beneath. Congratulations on your win of an Ultimaker 3, MatterControl T7X, and MatterHackers Pro PLA!
Thanks to all those who entered and congratulations to each of the winners. We have a new design contest coming up so stay tuned! If design isn’t your style, check out the eSUN Print Contest where each week, 5 winners can take their pick of several premium material options.
