2nd Primary School of Chios

During the first round of the activities of 3D4CE in our school the students had the opportunity to get familiar with the cultural heritage by using modern technologies of 3D printing. 

In more details 2 groups of students at the age of 8-9 years old and 10-11 years old worked with the curriculum of the program as a whole, but almost all the students took the chance to get involved with an activity or more. Activities were organized according to the intellectual outputs and the age of the group and took place from 15th of February to 30th of March 2022. 

The activities can be separated by those who were focused on the meaning, the categories and the characteristics of Cultural Heritage and those who were focused on the 3D-printing monuments, creating with the 3D-pens and 3D-printing techniques.
