Work in USM's CI2 Lab — teaching Portland teachers about 3-D printers and their uses in the classroom — led to a June 27 story on WMTW-TV.
The class was part of the Side x Side and the Summer Arts Institute, now in its third year. Teachers build skills and relationships at the institute that often broaden their instruction in the classroom. It continues in partnership with USM and the Portland Public School district and is supported by a $2 million Department of Education, Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination grant.
USM's Portland Campus also be hosted a Printmaking/Bookmaking class for teachers, combining simple printmaking and book-building techniques to create one-of-a-kind books.
