Project 3D Printing is realized by a consortium composed of four European organizations:
Euroface Consulting, CZ, Innovation Frontiers, GR, National Training Center, BG and Solski Center Velenje, Sl.
Project 3D Printing targets at increasing technical skills and digital competences of VET students through the implementation of the new learning approaches while applying 3D printing in education. 3D printers are up-to-date technologies in today's digital and technological world.
Project idea is based on the research that schools are using 3D printers especially for printing of ready-to-print 3D models. The research specified the need to foster VET schools to use the 3D printers’ great potential and enhance the schools to develop their own 3D models: this innovative learning approach increases students’ technical competences reflecting technological trends and labour market needs.
In the project, we would like to link work-based learning activities, the creation of the new 3D projects with raising students’ awareness and comprehending the EU common values: therefore, VET students will have a challenge to develop and object of 3D model on the topic of an EU cultural / craft heritage.
