About eNable Columbus
“…3D printing and design can electrify various literacies and creative capacities of children in accordance with the spirit of the interconnected, information-based world.” Kostakis, V., Niaros, V. & Giotitsas, C. (Forthcoming).
Recognizing education as the foundation for career readiness, a means to drive future innovation, eNable Columbus is a new local Service-Learning based program that builds upon the skills that students are learning in the classroom to connect to some real-world problem or need.
The program will focus on 3D Printing and utilize the resources of enablingthefuture.org. With these 21st century tools, students will fabricate a prosthesis for a local recipient at no cost. They will use creative problem solving and engineering design (STEAM) to serve members of the community.
Students will begin to make the connection that what they learn in school is connected to the “real” world. It is a framework for them to learn skills that will serve them for life.
This program is a partnership between Columbus State University's Coca-Cola Space Science Center and Muscogee County School District, Columbus, Ga.
