Abstract

3D design and digital fabrication have become a popular topic in education because this technology has become more affordable accessible for schools and districts. The maker movement (Doughtery, 2012) encourages creation and exploration through 3D design and printing, but a void exists in current literature surrounding students’ skill development as they digitally design and manipulate 3D objects. This paper reports the investigation of one possible benefit of the digital design process by asking the question, “Do fourth and fifth grade students who interact with basic digital design software increase their ability to recognize 3 dimensional rotations?”
