Overview

Learning from and preserving the past with 3D technologies

Students learn how museums use 3D scanning and 3D printing technology, will design and 3D print a personalised Cartouche, then make and 3D scan scarab seal models.

This cross-curricular workshop combines History with Computing, Art and Design Technology at KS2 and is suitable for Year 3 or Year 4 students. At the end of the workshop, each student will workshop students will have a 3D printed personalised cartouche and a clay scarab seal model.

Our different themed workshops are for Years 2-6  and are fully mapped to the KS1 and KS2 Design Technology, Computing, Mathematics, Science, Art, Literacy and History curriculums.

Each workshop provides:

  • a complete project around a topic
  • resources fully mapped to the relevant curriculum areas
  • copy of all the workshop resources, enabling them to run the workshop with other groups of students in the future, potentially taking advantage of the FREE CREATE Education 3D printer loan scheme

During the workshop’s students will:

  • learn how 3D printers work
  • discover some of the applications of 3D printing
  • design and create their own 3D model

All workshops:

  • run for half a day*
  • with a maximum of 30 students
  • 2½ – 3hrs to work around individual school day timings

From £300 for a half day workshop (dependent upon location of school)

Learning Outcomes

Testimonials

“Excellent company – great ethos and work ethic. CREATE is always looking for new ways of delivering inspiring workshops to children across the UK. Their commitment to STEM/STEAM is second to none and they are always happy to help and support”

“This project is fantastic. We were taken through the basics of 3D printing, eventually producing a wheel. The variations that anyone can make with the Ultimaker printer is endless and lets the child’s mind create. A great opening into the world engineering that this country needs for the future. I recommend this project to any school.”

“An excellent day from The CREATE Education Project. supporting both students and teaching staff to bring to life the new opportunities in 3D printing. Encouraging innovation, creativity, problem solving, teamwork and making Engineering more accessible to both boys and girls.”
