Hey MP Mini Select users. I am a science coordinator and I had a wild thought about offering a 3D printing class for science teachers in Summer 2017 in NW WA. I want your opinions.

Thought: The Mini Select is cheap. I could offer a 2 day class for $300. At the end of two days they would take their printer home. So really, the class is about $100.

A) Do you think the Mini Select works well enough that a bunch of n00b teachers could make it work and get some decent prints off of it with little enough headache?

B) A 12x12x12 cm print volume seems small... but not useless. Do you think n00bs will have enough to explore in that volume?

C) Any other thoughts you have?

Thanks!

GREAT observations, reflection, and suggestions regarding the "Homework vs NOhomework" debate!

Dear NGSS scholars! I am looking for quality and reliable materials about the NGSS in Spanish to share with parents! If anyone knows of anything of the sort, please point me in the right direction! Google has not been helpful, and I almost feel that means there's not much out there... but I can't imagine that's really the case!? :)

Thanks!

Howdy! I'm the science education coordinator for a regional education support agency in Northwest Washington State, USA. In my work supporting and facilitating transition to the Next Generation Science Standards, I try to help people understand the science and engineering practices... including the practice of "Using Mathematical and Computational Thinking." Unfortunately, there is very little out there to help operationally define what this means in an educational context, so I'm here to learn more and help others in my region wrap their own heads around it.
