This workshop or lesson activity makes use of a 3-D printing pen, and covers many computational thinking concepts as well as practical and evaluative skills applicable to design and technology.
The teacher guide includes a range of ‘unplugged’ computing activities – no programming is involved. The activities are differentiated for lower and higher-abilities, and a brief description of each is included in a teaching plan that is designed for use during an enrichment day.
Also included are health and safety guides, video tutorials and several pupil worksheets. A simple structure for a full-day workshop is provided.
The 3Doodle is a hot-nozzle plastic printer designed for ‘sketching’ in 3D. Mains power is needed for each 3Doodle, therefore teaching in a lab or workshop is advised.
The printable 3Doodler templates mentioned in the instructions can be found at http://the3doodler.com/
