I am a teacher of Engineering and Design & Technology, in London. I am a big fan of CAD/CAM and have just completed all new schemes of work, for my students, based around the B9Creator.
All my students, aged 11 to 16, will be learning SolidWorks and ArtCam for the first time, come September - and then, manufacture their creation....!!
I have just persuaded the school to buy a laser cutter, CNC routers, lathes, and casting equipment - and, in exchange, I have paid for the B9Creator. So it is an exciting time, for a school that is determined to move into the 21st century.
I am also a mentor for student DT teachers in London - and it is my hope, and desire, that all schools in the UK will follow my example (and buy their own B9Creator). In the meantime, I intend to share 'our' 3D printer with any school which is thinking of purchasing a quality, yet reasonably priced, 3D printer.
So, if you are in UK education, and want a demo, drop in for a visit at St Thomas The Apostle College (the kettle is always on).
