3D Printers Changing The Way Some Pasadena Students Learn

The students used computer-aided design software, known as CAD, to develop 3D models that could be broken into fractions. It was a math lesson, an art lesson, and more.

“It is about being creative. It is about adapting. It is about experimenting, It is about not being afraid to trust your instincts and go with an idea,” said graphic design teacher Miguel Almena, a former Disney employee who leads the 3D technology training of the district’s teachers. 

One district high school, Marshall Fundamental Secondary School, uses the new technology to partner with local businesses in developing new products with the printers. High school students are also building props for the school’s production of “Pippin.”
