Eighth Grade, 3D Printing Science Projects (1 result)

3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, is a rapidly changing technology that allows for the quick creation of small batches of products. Traditional manufacturing usually involves cutting products out of raw materials or pouring raw materials into molds. In contrast, 3D printing creates a product by adding layer after layer of material using computer-controlled robotics. 3D printing processes are being used to create a growing number of products, from food to custom prosthetics. With the help of different types of 3D printers, additive manufacturing can be used for enormous objects like a house or rocket as well as tiny things the size of a pencil tip.

Science Fair Project Idea
Science Buddies has several fun robotics projects, like the Art Bot: Build a Wobbly Robot That Creates Art and Grasping with Straws: Make a Robot Hand Using Drinking Straws, where you use arts and crafts materials to make part of a robot. Have you ever wanted to design a more-advanced, sturdier, or fancier looking robot? Then computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D printing might be for you; both are simpler than you think! The directions on this page will give you an introduction to these… Read more
