3D printing the weather
This activity enables students to create 3D models that represent temperature data. Via a series of video tutorials students are guided step by step through the process. Tinkercad 3D modelling software is required to do this but is freely available online, as well as access to a 3D printer. Once printed the tactile resource can be used to visualise and study weather and climate. A series of lessons are available to be used alongside the models to explore climate change using Central England temperature data.
