3D Printing in Chemical Education: Engaging Students and Creating Tools for Active Learning

The recent and accelerating advances in computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D printing methods capture the imagination as this exciting technology finds new applications in chemical education. This symposium will highlight innovative work toward creating 3D printable resources and fabrication activities that enhance active classroom and laboratory learning. The focus will encompass computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D printing methods to produce designs that span pedagogical applications from visualizing complex molecular structures and energy surfaces to the production of innovative new analytical tools and equipment for student use in laboratory learning. Classroom implementation strategies, student engagement, and assessment will also be highlighted. Plenty of time will be provided for your questions during a panel discussion at the conclusion of this symposium.
