EAST COAST CANADA MAKING SOME BIG WAVES

EAST COAST CANADA MAKING SOME BIG WAVES - Shop3D.ca

The Shop3D.ca team has just returned from the Atlantic Education Summit 2017 held at Moncton High School in Moncton, NB and boy, was it ever inspiring. We set out, not quite knowing what to expect, only to find that New Brunswick is taking some serious initiative to elevate the standards in technological integration into their teaching curriculum. Organized by Mario Chiasson and his dedicated team, the summit ran very smoothly.

 

The atmosphere was inspiring as various key note speakers and visitors to our booth all seemed to resonate with the same message. ‘We need to do more and inspire the students to want to learn more.’ You could tell that the teachers, as much as the students, were hungry for more knowledge of the leading Techno-World. They excitedly picked our brains about how 3D printing was currently being applied in the real world and in what scopes it could be translated into various school topics. They mentioned their ongoing pursuit of teaching design courses and the added thrill of taking it a step further and introducing their students to the concepts of prototyping in the hopes of inspiring the future generations to resolve current problems.

 

Our very own Jacky Wan aka Valcrow even led a discussion dispelling the myths behind 3D Printing and its place in the classroom which managed to help set the attendees minds at ease turning their skepticism in newly found excitement over the potential that 3D printing could now provide to elevate the qualities of various classes.

 

The summit was great, the teachers & staff were great, and of course, the lobster was (exceptionally) great! One thing is for certain, if New Brunswick and the rest of Atlantic Canada stays their course, their students may end up being some of the most competitive around!
