A group of children from Rabbits and Squirrels had an opportunity to see a 3d printer in action today. It was very exciting. We talked about how a printer usually prints pictures flat on a piece of paper. They watched the machine heat up and start to print an object. They watched it develop and tried to guess what was being made. They also explored the objects that had already been made. We used the software on the computer to see what else could print and they each searched for their own ideas. We had to wait for a little bit while we made some squirrels so we had a drink and a biscuit but before we knew it our products were ready.
