Project-Based Learning for 3D Printers: A Partnership Between Vanier College and Tianjin Vocational Institute

The 3D Printer project was implemented as an enrichment activity for students that also facilitated an exchange between Vanier College and Tianjin Vocational Institute with the help of MACC. It helped us to maintain our partnerships with international institutions as well as increase student engagement in an innovative way during the Covid-19. Students were grouped together to design and produce an item in a team-based setting without prior knowledge of 3D printing. The competencies gained from this project included creativity, adaptability, resourcefulness, leadership, and design skills. This project was accessible mainly because there were no costs involved for the students.
