Woo, Yura; Ju, Young-Gu – Physics Education, 2019
In this paper, we present the details of the development of a smartphone spectrometer for education using a 3D printer and characterized the performance by comparison with a paper craft spectrometer. The optical design and the narrow slit used in the build resulted in the formation of accurate images of the slit on the image sensor leading to a…

LeSuer, Robert J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Consumer-grade manufacturing tools such as 3D printers are becoming increasingly prevalent in STEM education environments, especially as tools to develop inexpensive, tactile visualization models. Presented here is a workflow for creating 3D-printed periodic tables displaying a variety of trends from traditionally taught relationships such as…

Hsiao, Hsien-Sheng; Chen, Jyun-Chen; Lin, Chien-Yu; Zhuo, Pei-Wen; Lin, Kuen-Yi – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This study combined 3D printing technology with experiential learning strategies (ELS) to design a hands-on curriculum for preengineering students. The participants learned interdisciplinary knowledge and abstract scientific concepts through the curriculum. The study implemented a quasi-experimental design to examine whether the students who…

Koehler, Karen E.; Wild, Tiffany A.; Tikkun, Sean – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2018
This article presents the results of a study on the use of 3-D printed models in a science classroom for students with visual impairments and examines whether the use of these models impacts student conceptual understanding and misconceptions related to geosciences concepts, specifically plate tectonics. Data were collected one week prior to…

Hazlett, Eric; Aragoneses, Andrés – Physics Teacher, 2018
We present a versatile experimental apparatus for exploring rotational motion through the interplay between the moment of inertia, torque, and rotational kinetic energy of a wheel. The heart of this experiment uses a 3D-printed wheel along with easily accessible stock components that allow for the adjustment of the moment of inertia while keeping…
