Dr.Brown3DprintingOn Wednesday, Nov 6, 2013, Dr. Abbie Brown, a full professor in Instruction Technology, shared his knowledge of and experiences with 3D printing with mathematics education students and faculty. Dr. Brown spoke with a standing room only crowd during the monthly Gamma Student Chapter meeting. Students and faculty enjoyed getting their hands on several of Dr. Brown’s previous prints, which included a dragon, a dog, a treasure chest, an owl, and a ring. Attendees learned about the cost of necessary materials, how 3D printing works, and potential uses of 3D printing. The conversation also included time for students to discuss applications of 3D printing for the mathematics classroom. The culmination of the presentation was a 3D printing of an ECU insignia ring.

The next meeting of the Gamma Student Chapter will be on Wednesday, Dec 4, 2013 from 5-6 pm. We will be Flipping the Mathematics Classroom! Please join us!!!
