One More Awesome Resource For Our Makers.....3Doodler With Stencils, Projects, and Lots of Ideas!

There are so many awesome tools and resources for our makers!  We can put anything into our Makerspaces, libraries, and classrooms and our young people will find a way to use their imagination, curiosity, and knowledge to create something unique and wonderful.

One of my favorite new tools for our makers is 3Doodler.
 As the website says....3Doodler, The World's First 3D Printing Pen.  
The 3D printing pen allows you to draw in 3D by extruding heated plastic filament that cools almost instantly into a solid, stable structure.  
My students loved our 3Doodler! It was really fun to see what they created.  There were lots of houses, animals, books, and letters, especially their names, scattered around the library.

Yesterday I was ordering a new 3Doodler 2.0 and I saw this....
I had no idea that they had over 200 free downloadable stencils and projects on their 3Doodler Community Site.  How cool is that!  I couldn't wait to check it out. 
 You can go to the 3Doodler Community page to get free stencils and projects.
You will find them in several different categories....pick the one that fits your needs. I recommend you check out all of them.

I clicked on Teach. 
It brought up lots of different stencils that could be used in the classroom with science, math and social studies topics.
Look at all of the state stencils or patterns.  It would be so much fun to create the United States with the 3Doodler.
Next I went to the Decorate section in the 3Doodler Community.

I clicked on the Pendant Lamp Shade.
The pattern told me a few details about the Pendant Lamp Shade such as the Tags.  It also gave me a link to the pattern....View Pattern. 

From here you can print or email the pattern.  Students could also look off of their laptop or device, such as a phone or iPad.
The pattern directions are easy to follow....and the photographs are just the best. 
If you would like to purchase 3Doodler's for your space too, check out their website.  It is packed full of amazing resources, ideas, and deals on these cool pens.
In fact, 3Doodler gives all of us 15% off to be used for education.

This is one tool that your younger and older students alike will fall in love with it!  And so will you.
