This research intends to study the design and development of 3D-printing-based instructional methodology for the living technology course, and its effectiveness on students’ technological creativity. The instructional method was designed based on the design thinking process, which guided students to conduct design and production. This study adopts quasi-experimental research method, the experimental group used 3D modelling and printing to assist creation design, whereas the control group used Gigo bricks to assist creation design. The experiment results show that although the experimental and control group had no differences in the results of the technological creativity test, however, the experimental group performed significantly better on designing and producing technological artifacts in terms of flexibility.
