3-D Printers Bring Ideas to Life

Students at Conway Elementary watch a demonstration to see how these types of printers are used.

By showing students what a concept might look like, or how it might operate in real life, 3-D printers are increasingly being used as educational tools in schools. The Ladue Education Foundation has recently approved a grant to purchase a 3-D printer for Ladue Horton Watkins High School. In this picture, students at Conway Elementary are watching a demonstration to see how these types of printers are used in business, and education to assist in refining concepts and ideas by displaying them in three dimensions.
