Free Educator 3D Toolkit Coming Soon

Guest Posting by Matthew Straub, Communications Director of the City X Project.

After 16 design thinking workshops in three countries and 547 inventions by kids ages 8-12 – all of which were made in 3D modeling software – City X Project Director Libby Falck announced this week during a talk at SXSW edu that all of our work will be culminating in a free toolkit for educators, to be released on our website on April 8th.

The City X Project is a 3D Systems-sponsored and Common Core-aligned workshop that uses a story-based curriculum, 3D printing technologies, and the Stanford d.School Design Process to empower kids to become inventors and changemakers. Our free, downloadable toolkit will include everything a teacher or other educator needs to run the workshop in their own school, including designer workbooks for students, City X citizen cards, and documents with tips and tricks for 3D printing and 3D modeling with kids.

Thanks to the support of the Pearson Foundation, our workshop aligns with several Mathematics and English Language Arts Common Core Standards, and we’ll feature several add-on activities that will allow teachers to explore the world of design thinking and City X even deeper and across various subjects, such as science and social studies.

You can sign up to receive a one-time email the day the City X Project toolkit is released here.
