Intercomp has recently been appointed distributor in Malta of one of the leading 3D printer brands in the global market, XYZprinting, which forms part of the New Kinpo Group.

XYZprinting products range from small 3D printers for home use up to industrial UV Laser 3D printer models.

A one-day training session was recently organised by Intercomp with the scope of introducing and bringing this technology closer to Maltese students.

Teachers of design and technology from 10 randomly-selected Church schools were invited to this session in order to gain first-hand experience of this 3D technology.

The training was conducted by a representative from XYZprinting, who came over to Malta purposely for the event.

The training session covered in depth step-by-step procedures on how to deliver an engaging STEAM-based lesson, using child-centric 3D software and 3D printers along the way.

XYZprinting provides a complete action-ready solution for every classroom environment. Students can build 3D models and 3D prints to assist their approach and ability to solve problems in the classroom.

At the end of the training session, a 3D printer was presented to every teacher for use in their respective schools.

With the help of these 3D printers, students can build 3D models and 3D prints to assist their approach and ability to solve problems in the classroom.

Designing and printing 3D models reinforces lessons in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics that are already being taught in classrooms.

School curriculums can easily be enhanced by bringing 3D printing into the classroom. Providing students with the tools to learn the STEAM fundamentals will help them in future studies  and prepare them for a career in related fields.
