The idea and implementation of the forum on May 17, 2022 is in the hands of three partners: In addition to the 3D printing system manufacturers Stratasys and MakerBot, this includes MedienLB – Medien für Lehrplanen und Bildungsstandards GmbH Starnberg. The company, headed by Dr. Anita Stangl, creates innovative interactive work aids such as digital learning tools for school lessons and thus addresses the approximately 600 media centers in Germany. In these centers, teachers can borrow digital materials for school lessons free of charge. They also receive training on how to use the learning materials. The MedienLB in Erfurt organizes training on the use of digital tools in the classroom exclusively for media center employees.
Preparing young people for the digital world of work
In the public part of the forum on the afternoon of May 17, representatives from industry, research and education will discuss the integration of additive and digital technologies in the teaching of general and vocational schools. . In her presentation, Franziska Kaut of Procter & Gamble will show the industry requirements for training in this area. Mira H. Wulff from the IPN – Leibnitz Institute for Science Education in Kiel presents a cooperation with Danish partners. They work across borders in southern Denmark and Schleswig-Holstein to prepare young people for the world of work in the region and to promote skills for employment-related digital technologies. Professor Daniel Müller explains how the subject of 3D printing is taught at the vocational high school of the Louis Lepoix school in Baden-Baden. Klaus Winkler from Synapsis brings a suitcase with him to Erfurt which contains five model parts and the necessary hardware and software, including instructions, to use them to design and manufacture the five parts additively. This 3D design and printing solution for schools, developed in collaboration with industry and education partners, is called “Digital Genial”. In an accompanying exhibit, forum participants can see these and other solutions.
High-level specialized program with innovations from AM application and AM research
The Education Forum is part of the industry-leading Rapid.Tech 3D congress. Speeches from Airbus Helicopter, Autodesk, German-Emirati-Institute, nFrontier, Porsche, Procter & Gamble, Sauber and Toolcraft provide insight into current additive developments. Topics are explored further in the various specialized forums. In addition to the Education Forum, the AM in Civil Engineering & Architecture; Automotive & Mobility; design, aeronautics; medical, dental and orthopedic technology; software and processes; Construction of tools, models and molds as well as news from AM. The state and prospects of AM research are presented in the AM Science Forum. In this part of the program, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, among others, will present current results and projects in the field of additive manufacturing.
