3D Printing in Emma’s 3rd Class

We have had a very busy couple of weeks in 3rd Class! We have started to make projects on Poland and have been researching information from our books, atlases and fact sheets.

We eventually had to throw our bread experiment out because it was so smelly! We tested a number of surfaces on slices of bread to see what transferred the most bacteria. We saw the results in the form of mould on the bread. The worst was the bread that was touched off shoes and off dust.

We were very lucky to have a Digital Technology workshop with TechCreate, facilitated through Newbridge Library. We got to see how a 3D printer works. Colm from TechCreate designed Shrek on his computer and then transferred the data to the printer. We saw Shrek being printed in 3D in the printer. It was made from plastic.
