Brittell, Megen E.; Lobben, Amy K.; Lawrence, Megan M. – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2018
Introduction: Technological advances have introduced three-dimensional (3-D) printing as an option for creating tactile maps for people with visual impairments (that is, those who are blind or have low vision), diversifying the types of map products that are available. At the same time, it presents a challenge to map makers to implement designs…

Paul, Stepan – PRIMUS, 2018
As three-dimensional (3D) printing technology is fast becoming more affordable and accessible, calculus instructors can now consider using 3D printing and 3D printed models to actively engage students in core concepts relating to objects in R[superscript 3]. This article describes three lessons for a multivariable calculus class in which students…

Davis, Eric J.; Jones, Michael; Thiel, D. Alex; Pauls, Steve – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Additive manufacturing (3D printing) is a technology with near-unlimited potential for the chemical educator. However, its adoption into higher education has been limited by the dual requirements of expertise in 3D printing and 3D computer-aided design (CAD). Thus, its reported utilization in the chemistry curriculum has been within the creation…

Schmidt, Benjamin; King, David; Kariuki, James – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
A reference electrode is an essential component of all three-electrode electrochemical measurements. Common commercial reference electrodes, including the saturated calomel electrode and Ag/AgCl reference electrode, are expensive with the former containing toxic mercury. Cheaper alternatives have been proposed including Ag/AgCl references made…

Reißer, Sabine; Prock, Sebastian; Heinzmann, Hartmut; Ulrich, Anne S. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Protein ORIGAMI (http://ibg.kit.edu/protein_origami) is a browser-based web application that allows the user to create straightforward 3D paper models of folded peptides for research, teaching and presentations. An amino acid sequence can be turned into a-helices, ß-strands and random coils that can be printed out and folded into properly scaled…

Knochel, Aaron D.; Hsiao, Wen-Hsia; Pittenger, Alyssa – Art Education, 2018
In this article, the authors present early research in using 3-D printing to develop tactile experiences to improve understanding and enable broader aesthetic participation in arts learning contexts for all learners that would benefit from tactility and in particular those with low vision. Their exploration of 3-D printing to create assistive…
