Next-Gen Shop Class

A7516721_2Class, put down your saws and hammers, the shop class is about to change. With the advent of 3-D printers, kids can now design what they want to make in software and then watch it get made. Dell now sells the Maker Bot 3-D printer complete with all the software you’ll need along with the filament that is the printer’s raw material. The best part is that rather than wobbly spice racks and lamps, kids get items they designed and made themselves.
