With the expansion of the applications of 3D printing technology throughout industry, it is important that students start to develop the design and technical skills required to harness this technology. This will provide a future workforce with the skills required to meet the demands of this expanding industry.

Developing these skills can begin in the Primary school. Schools can maximise on their investment by embedding 3D printing across the school at all levels and in multiple subject areas, using it as a tool to increase pupil engagement and attainment.
