• Y Soft launches online collection of 3D lessons for educators

        • Y Soft Corporation has unveiled be3D Academy, an online collection of 3D resources and lesson plans designed to make it easy to teach in 3D. be3D Academy is now available to educators as an additional part of YSoft be3D eDee, a 3D printing solution designed specifically for Education. 

          While the benefits of 3D printing in the classroom are well understood, many educators have neither the time nor the 3D knowledge to develop lesson plans that incorporate 3D printing. Despite this, Y Soft research shows that 77 per cent of schools planned on expanding the use of 3D printing in their schools. 

          Elke Heiss, Y Soft Chief Marketing Officer said, “3D printing is particularly valuable in the classroom to convey complex subjects. When students can touch and adjust physical objects they have created, understanding increases. Comprehension of STEAM subjects can be difficult, and be3D Academy’s lessons make concepts interesting and fun. be3D Academy lesson plans range from creating castles to understanding geometric shapes and volumes to creating a Da Vinci bridge as a science learning project.”

          With be3D Academy, educators now have an online resource of teacher-tested STEAM projects that quickly bring classroom subjects to life.

          Each be3D Academy lesson plan offers educators a variety of tools, including 3D model files, videos, student worksheets, and presentations to help introduce the 3D project to students. Each lesson indicates the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) or design concepts that the project explores. be3D Academy also includes video tutorials and a 3D model database containing ready-made models that can be printed using the YSoft be3D eDee printer.

          be3D Academy is open to any educator interested in bringing the benefits of 3D printing to the classroom. The lessons and provided 3D models are designed and optimised for use on YSoft be3D eDee printers with Y Soft certified filaments.
