- 21st century classroom tools featured include Cube®, SenseTM, TouchTM
- 3D printing technology creates new digital literacy for America's students
City X Project – prospective educators can explore the City X Project's newly released curriculum and toolkit that gets kids designing and 3D printing meaningful projects within a three-day workshop. The City X Project was globally tested in a yearlong pilot program in locations including California, Hungary, Lebanon and Singapore, and is Common Core-guided. The free toolkit is available at cityxproject.com/toolkit.Blokify – kids, teachers and parents alike can quickly design castles, ships, rockets and original creations from this easy mobile app that uses blocks to make 3D design accessible to everyone. Blokify is fully gamified and all creations are 3D printable for home printers and cloud printing at Cubify.com. Cube® 3D Printers – attendees can see 3DS' award winning home and classroom 3D printers live print at the event. The Cube series of printers range from the affordable Cube 3D printer to the advanced, triple-color, multi-material CubePro TM that will be available later in 2014. Wireless physical photography –attendees can get live scanned with 3DS' Sense TM 3D scanner for PC and Mac users. It provides seamless optimization for 3D printing. Ideal for physical photography, the Sense is priced at $399, including software, and can scan anything from six inches to ten feet in dimension. Sense can be integrated beyond STEAM education and is one of the easiest tools to introduce 3D technology to students of all ages. Perceptual 3D mouse – Attendees can use the first-ever haptic-based consumer 3D mouse, the Touch TM, for intuitive 3D sculpting and design. The Touch features instant force feedback that mimics the sensation of physical sculpting, and is compatible with 3DS' Cubify ® Sculpt TM software, providing a powerful virtual design experience for K-12 STEAM classes.
