The CAD/3D printing work of several students at St. Peter Catholic School in Greenville is on display this month at East Carolina University. Some of the students visited WITN News at Sunrise on Tuesday.
Art Teacher John Bell says students have been working in class and in after-school sessions to create items using CAD, or computer-aided design software, then printing them with the school's 3D printer.
The work done in art class is a compliment to other parts of the students' curriculum. For instance, the printing of hands in 3D serves as an engineering component to the 7th grade science class STEM unit on the anatomy and physiology of the human hand.
The work of some of the students is on display this month at the Teaching Resources Center of ECU's Joyner Library on the second floor.
