NASA Helps Educators Learn About 3D Printing

(Herald-Dispatch) Training at the Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Flexible Manufacturing (RCBI) is providing dozens of teachers across West Virginia the tools and skills they need to deliver interactive lessons to their students. In collaboration with NASA Independent Verification and Validation Educator Resource Center, RCBI and Marshall University’s June Harless Center delivered a one-day workshop which provided training on the NASA Museum-in-a-Box program. It also provided information about the role of 3D printing in K-12 classrooms to teachers from 12 counties in West Virginia. The exercises encourage students to consider career opportunities with innovative, leading-edge technology. Successful completion of the course permits teachers to borrow a $1,000 classroom kit of activities from NASA that covers science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) lessons.
