Why 3D printing

Aligned to the ADST and STEAM curricula, our educational resources promote a project-based, hands-on learning process driven by technology and design thinking. 3D printing, with its ability to quickly materialize ideas, is a natural fit inside a 21st century learning environment.

Design thinking

At the heart of Tinkerine’s vision is a creative process called design thinking. Design thinking is taking a hands-on, user-centred approach to problem solving. It applies a structured framework that consists of a series of distinct phases.
