How 3D Printing Will Revolutionize the Classroom

3D Printers in the Classroom? Why?

"Physical models are an important form of hands-on active learning that is  increasingly being replaced by virtual simulations...rapid prototyping technology has the potential to reverse this trend, and reap the educational benefits while eliminating many of the logistic difficulties that have lead to it. Moreover, the use of rapid prototyping can offer new opportunities to enhance accessibility to physical teaching models and customize them for specific personal learning needs, thereby opening new educational possibilities." (--Hod Lipson, Cornell,
