3D printing doesn’t have to be limited to a tool for STEM subjects — 3D printers can also be integrated into subjects like Math, Visual Arts, Social Studies, and more! Check out our lesson idea to get you started with your Makerbot.

Beatiful Topology

  • Have students create a möbius strip with a piece of paper and tape. Define topology, and discuss the innate beauty that many see in it.
  • Research the topological works of Eva Hild, a sculpture artist, and sketch an inspired design.
  • In a CAD software, try to recreate your paper möbius strip or a design inspired by Eva Hild.
  • 3D print your design for display.

Drive student achievement, and career readiness.
