At ISTE 2018, 3DBear is offering educators a thrilling challenge: A U.S. astronaut is stranded on Mars. How are you going to save him? And as a teacher, what science could you teach your students as they try?
Students and teachers will have the chance to save that astronaut in augmented reality (AR) during the Northern Illinois STEM Read Professional Development Party in Space. The event will feature Andy Weir, author of the best-selling novels The Martian and Artemis.
Using 3DBear’s app and a virtual gallery of objects in Thingiverse, teams will develop 3D objects and create a colony on Mars. They will also consider the scientific principles behind growing plants and recycling water on their colony, and will use a Makerbot 3D printer to bring their 3DBear AR design to life.
