How Littlehampton PS Students Helped A Boy With Cystic Fibrosis using 3D Printing

Students at Littlehampton Primary School in Australia were asked to solve a real-world problem using Design Thinking, 3D printing and Makers Empire.

Will, a student at the school, has Cystic Fibrosis. He has to use a nebuliser everyday and it can be tricky drying the apparatus. So the students decided to use Makers Empire to create a device that Will could use to dry his apparatus out.

With this video, Littlehampton Primary School won the Best Video award at the recent 3D Printing in Schools Showcase Day, where 43 of the participating schools came together to celebrate and share their learning. Check out photos from the day.

Watch the video and be inspired by these fantastic, community-minded primary school students.

Littlehampton Primary School was one of 100 schools who took part of phase 3 of the 3D Printing in Schools project, a joint program between the Department of Education (SA), Makers Empire and public primary schools. To date, this pioneering program has helped 170 primary schools learn how to teach Design Thinking, STEM and 21st century learning skills with 3D printing and 3D design.
