2D to 3D – 3D Printing and Mathematics
Students will build upon their knowledge of mathematical models and the relevance of these models to real world structures.
For: Year 11 students with an aptitude for mathematics
In this workshop students will learn about the relationship between design and product, the effect of forces, and the mathematics involved in 3D printing. This workshop will also link mathematical equations and the structures they define.
What will students do?
- Students will be engaged in mathematical modelling.
- Students will explore shape, strength and forces through designing and testing supporting bridge structures.
- As the program is a practical activity, students will be required to wear closed in shoes and appropriate dress.
