Helping teachers integrate 3D printing into the classroom

3D Printing in the Classroom

We understand the opportunities and challenges facing teachers who want to integrate 3D printing into their classrooms.  We offer professional programs for educators at all levels – elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, universities, and other education centers. We also offer services to teachers and school districts that make it possible for teachers to focus their time on teaching interesting lessons to their students rather than fixing 3D printers.

3D Herndon supports programs in hundreds of schools throughout Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC and beyond. We have 3D printers, solutions, service contracts and multi-year, system-wide contracts in prominent school districts throughout the region.  Some of our most valued customers include:

Did you know that making jewelry is as much a science as it is an art?  You may think of it as shiny gold and sparkly stones, but it’s a lot more than that.  It’s about problem solving with computer aided design (CAD), measuring, sizing, material properties, thermodynamics, metallurgy, melting points, molding, casting, flow control, cooling and finishing.  It’s science, engineering, art and business.  Check it out.
