Learn How the Robotics Team at Carl Hayden High School Uses 3d Printing to Push the Boundaries of Stem Learning – Mastering the Skills That Ensure Success in a Rapidly Changing World.
High school robotics teams have never been more popular, and perhaps none are more impressive or well known as the talented crew of 14 - 18 year old students in Phoenix, Arizona that make up Falcon Robotics. Led by the inspiring coach Faridodin “Fredi” Lajvardi, a Marine Science teacher at Carl Hayden High School, Falcon Robotics was catapulted to notoriety in 2004 when they competed as underdogs against high schools and universities to win a national championship.
“Falcon Robotics works sort of like a small company” coach Fredi explains. “Different teams collaborate to design things like navigation software or propulsion systems, solving smaller problems, then fit them together to solve the broader challenges set out by the competition.” With access to reliable and intuitive MakerBot 3D p

Rollem Ltd of Barnsley, specialist manufacturers of innovative, bespoke print finishing solutions for printers around the world has been in business for over 90 years, and unsurprisingly owes its’ long years of success to exploiting technical innovation to drive their continuing supply of highly accurate, flexible, productive systems.
An early adopter of 3D printing, Rollem runs a suite of MakerBot 3D printers from 5th Gen to the latest members of the MakerBot Method family of printers. Normally printing bespoke or low volume or custom parts for customised system modules, recent events have pared Rollems’ normally vibrant working environment back to a skeleton crew focusing on printing facemask parts for the NHS as part of a manufacturing and distribution network to help meet PPE demand during this national pandemic.
The National 3D Printing Society has joined efforts with Medical Supply Drive UK, a non-profit organisation run by volunteer NHS doctors, medical students and

As COVID-19 continues to impact the world, the need for 3D printing solutions to provide supplies to the medical community increases drastically. Many creative and determined heroes are turning to 3D printing to support the medical community at this time to help combat the shortage of necessary supplies. This new initiative aims to connect the needs of the medical community with 3D Printing and their extensive network to support requests for supplies quickly and efficiently.
3D printing is now being used by many to create facemasks and protective shields. These case studies show how effective and efficient 3D printing can be for mass production.
