3D Printing Systems’ website provides a summary rationale for having 3D printers in the classroom, claiming that when children use them “they have a mindset for better learning, one where it was okay to make mistakes. This contributes to their boldness for design, increasing their confidence and imagination.”  Although this website is designed as a marketing tool for the company’s own printers, it also points to the different educational jurisdictions that are making use of printers in classrooms.
