The New Shop Class: Getting Started with 3D Printing, Arduino, and Wearable Tech Reviews
I just finished reading The New Shop Class by Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron. This is an important book. Given all of the recent interest in making, and in related technologies like 3d printing, this book is very helpful to those who are looking for guidance in how to get started, and where to go for information. I read The New Shop Class on my Kindle. In the Kindle version there are links to helpful resources, and it was very easy to click on the links to research more deeply into the areas addressed in the book. I really appreciated this feature.
While the title of this book implies that it is written for educators, it is also an invaluable resource for any nontechnical parent who wants to nurture their child's interest in 3D printing, Arduino, and other current technology trends. The book strikes a balance between instructional chapters that cover the fundamentals of these technologies (in unintimidating, layperson terms), as well as real-life case studies that show how kids and parents can find the support required to further develop such Maker skills.
Got my money's worth with this book. Came as promised.
Author seems to think that the mechanics of a totally disposable is ok. As someone who has taught IA, Tech Ed & pre-engineering for twenty years, these authors are really selling three d printers & cheesy electronics. Don't waste your time, go build something and educate your hands.
