Do your students see the connection between what they learn in school and the world around them? 3Doodler ties in real-world connections to STEM concepts in seconds.
After a full year of remote learning in 2020, it’s nice to be back in the classroom this year. Both teachers and students thrive from working together in person. Administrators and teachers know that offering a classroom environment rich in STEAM learning is critical for students’ future success. As research has shown, hands-on learning through real-world examples is such an important element when it comes to retaining information and grasping tough concepts.
Hands-on experimentation is critical for testing out new ideas. 3Doodler adds a new dimension to engineering, art, and design, by introducing unique ways to problem solve and be creative. We’ve come across some pretty unique ways that classrooms have been utilizing their 3Doodlers across the country, and today, we wanted to share a few of those highlights.
What’s Happening in the Classroom
Mrs. Rounding the Librarian at Odyssey Academy, in Rochester, NY hosted a great maker space and Mrs. Eure, a teacher at Newsome Park Elementary in Virginia, explored different ways the 3Doodler could be used in her classroom.

Mrs. Pechar, a librarian at Birchcrest Elementary, in Omaha, Nebraska, helped her students recreate an air hockey game with their 3Doodler 3D pens. Mrs. Powers, a STEAM education consultant, outside of Philadelphia, helps teachers and students in PreK-2nd grade integrate technology into the classroom. She used her 3Doodlers to add a new layer of creativity to teaching history.
Wonderful energy in the #STEAM Studio this morning as 5th grade historians finalize their products to trade on the Nile River. Next up, marketing them by creating an engaging video! #AISLeads #makered pic.twitter.com/QnSalRUoK3— Margaret A Powers (@mpowers3) November 4, 2021
