Showcasing 3D talent at WMPS

STUDENTS at Wallaroo Mines Primary School have been embracing a first-of-its-kind in Australia learning opportunity for a hands-on look at 3D printing technology.

WMPS is one of 50 primary schools in South Aust­ralia selected to participate in the first large-scale roll out of a Makers Empire initiative.

This has resulted in an inspired group of year 4 and 5 students bringing an array of 3D objects to life using the school’s new Makerbot replicator printer.
