Manufacturing for primary schools

I-Form is working with primary schools around Ireland in an effort to inspire the next generation to explore manufacturing and to support teachers who are keen to learn more about new technologies (such as 3D printing) and integrate them into the classroom.


Manufacturing a Healthy Future

'Manufacturing a Healthy Future' is a European project funded by EIT Manufacturing; the project partners are Stryker and I-Form (University College Dublin) in Ireland; Arts et Metier Institute of Technology in France; University of Tartu in Estonia; LINPRA in Lithuania; and PBN in Hungary.

Aside from in-person 3D printing training courses, the project has also developed a short series of e-learning content on 3D printing that is available to all interested teachers. If you would like access to this content on the Skillsmove platform, email to request free access.
