MatterHackers is excited to present our first meetup event of 2021, with a featured presentation by special guest, MatterHackers Education Ambassador Jackie Derr. We showcased the latest 3D Printing technology for the classroom and beyond as well as real-world projects and curriculum that inspire students' creativity through the power of making.
Thank you so much to everyone who attended with us at this inspiring presentation and engaging discussion with the audience that followed, and special thanks again to Jackie Derr!

Ultimaker 2+ Connect 3D Printer
At home, at school, or in the office, sending print jobs to the Ultimaker 2+ Connect 3D Printer is a breeze. Via Wi-Fi or Ethernet, cloud 3D printing allows remote file transfer, with added security, from anywhere in the world. Leverage the full power of Ultimaker Cura and slice with your choice of extensively tested Ultimaker material profiles, or tweak over 400 advanced settings. Then click "print via the cloud" to start your print from any place you choose.

As part of a 3-part lesson guiding students through self-instruction in 3D Design, Jackie provided her class with a link to the TinkerCad website where they followed the lessons and projects provided there before creating an original 3D model of their own. Use the following links to download the instructions and grading rubric of this multi-day 3D Design learning project.
Jackie created a real life problem - in this case, entertaining a young family member while babysitting - and challenged her students to invent, design, and 3D print a functioning bubble wand that fit a list of specific criteria to solve that problem.

Our society today is fortunate to be surrounded by many different cultures, religions and races. In order to be the best that we can possibly be, one must be aware of the cultural diversity that surrounds us.
This lesson allows students to discuss their own cultures, religions, etc. while gaining knowledge and understanding of their fellow classmates. Students will then discuss what classifies an object to be an ornament, followed by using a 3D design program to design their own ornament. Once the ornaments are printed, students will present their ornament to the class explaining the significance behind it.
