The RepRap 3-D Printer Revolution in STEM Education

STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields of study meant to improve U.S. competitiveness by guiding curriculum and influencing education policy. STEM education begins with K-12 educators, who are struggling with how to implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) that now place explicit emphasis on the relationship of engineering to science. The NGSS guidelines suggest that science curriculum should have activities with an iterative process invol...

Open-source 3-D printing Technologies for education: Bringing Additive Manufacturing to the Classroom

Objective 3-D printing technologies have the potential to improve both Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and Career and Technical Education (CTE), as well as integrating these two educational emphases and providing opportunities for cross-curriculum engagement. The objective of this study is to investigate the potential of open-source (OS) technologies in an educational setting, given the combination of economic constraints affecting all educational envir...

A Virtual Educational Exchange: A North-South Virtually-Shared Class on Sustainable Development

Increasingly international competence is considered and important skill to be acquired from an undergraduate education. Because international exchange presents a challenge to many students, there is a need to develop and implement alternative means for incorporating international and cross-cultural experiences into the undergraduate classroom. We report on the implementation of a semester-long, virtually-shared course offering between a U.S. and a Bolivian university. Since STEM (science, tec...

Free and Open Source 3-D Model Customizer for Websites to Democratize Design with OpenSCAD

3-D printing has entered the consumer market because of recent radical price declines. Consumers can save substantial money by offsetting purchases with DIY pre-designed 3-D printed products. However, even more value can be obtained with distributed manufacturing using mass customization. Unfortunately, the average consumer is not technically sophisticated enough to easily design their own products. One solution to this is the use of an overlay on OpenSCAD parametric code, although current so...

Open Source 3-D Printers: An Appropriate Technology for Building Low Cost Optics Labs for the Developing Communities

The recent introduction of RepRap (self-replicating rapid prototyper) 3-D printers and the resultant open source technological improvements have resulted in affordable 3-D printing, enabling low-cost distributed manufacturing for individuals. This development and others such as the rise of open source-appropriate technology (OSAT) and solar powered 3-D printing are moving 3-D printing from an industry based technology to one that could be used in the developing world for sustainable developme...

THE EXTENT OF INTEGRATION IN THE GHANAIAN SHS INTEGRATED SCIENCE SYLLABUS

Integrated science is an approach by which scientific concepts and principles are presented in manner to express the fundamental unity of thought in science so as to avoid undue stress distinction among the various scientific field.  This implies that science must not be put into separate disciplines like physics, chemistry or biology when being presented. This means that an integrated science curriculum should not have separate discipline like physics, chemistry and biology and fo...

EFFECTS OF MULTIMEDIA INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES ON CHEMISTRY STUDENTS’ SCIENCE PROCESS SKILLS ACQUISITION AND ACHIEVEMENT IN KANO STATE

ABSTRACTThis study examined the effects of multimedia instructional strategies on chemistry students’ science process skills acquisition and achievement in Kano state. Six research questions and six null hypotheses guided the study. Researchers have revealed that students perform poorly in practical chemistry in spite of all that has been done to improve science teaching and learning in secondary schools. This situation could hamper their overall achievement in chemistry and therefor...

FACTORS MILITATIG AGAINST THE TEACHING OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING CRAFT PRACTICE IN GOVERNMENT TEACHNICAL COLLEGES IN ENUGU STATE

ABSTRACTThe journey on the path of technical education started as far back as in the 1930’s when the commission on Higher Education proposed that the premises of Yaba Higher College should be converted to a technical institute. In line with this arrangement a student was expected to spend two years in general studied department and three years in an area of specialization like the mechanical engineering craft department. Responses to questions posed by the researcher have shown that mechani...

THE ROLE OF VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN NATIONAL ECONOMY DEVELOPMENT.

 A Abstract   Technical education, as entrenched in the Nigerian National Policy on Education, is concerned with qualitative technological human resources development directed towards a national pool of skilled and self-reliant craftsmen, technicians and technologists in technical and vocational fields. The two key phrases, which readily come to mind in this type of education, are competency-ba...

INVESTIGATE THE MICROBIAL CONTENT OF SOME BOLTED SOFT DRIVELS SOLD IN ENUGU INTERLOPES

ABSTRACTThis work was done in order to investigate the microbial content of some bolted soft drivels sold in Enugu interlopes. Soft drink are consumed in large quantities by the different age groups, adult and children of different class of people all over the state. This is aided by the general availability of these drink almost every place  roleve people gather for work or recreational activities. It is the appropriate to subject these soft drinks to some kind of investigation by isola...
