3D printing comes into classrooms and learning spaces in many different ways and using any number of subject areas.

Math and physics are just two of the possibilities.

Walter Anderson has created this Newtonian Projectile Launcher that can be used to teach acceleration, momentum and conservation of energy. While these launchers can be purchased from a number of different science and education supply centres, we think that creating and printing your own may be just as valuable of an experience as the experiments themselves!

The other resource that we’d love for you to check out is this blog called MakerHome. While the site features all different kinds of 3D printed objects (1 each day for a year!) many of the objects are 3D printed representations of math concepts. Informative and fascinating, MakerHome is well worth your time to check out.
