This was a cool event I attended this past weekend. They discussed the future of 3d printing, and how it may evolve in the classroom. As a student, I could relate to some of the points they made about teacher student relations changing to accept the idea that both the teacher and the student can learn from each other.

STEM stands for Science Technology Engineering and Math
A few weekends ago, I helped with an event called Ed Camp at my high school. They had topics ranging from software engineering to 3D printing, how those different subjects played a role in education. one of the topics was about 3D printing and I was the leader of that group. I brought the Ultimaker and the 3DR, and we set up the schools Makerbot up too. Over all it was successful and went well.
