Elon University: Irons integrates 3D printing technology and history for interactive hands-on learning

Elon University: Irons integrates 3D printing technology and history for interactive hands-on learning. “When teaching Elon undergraduates about enslavement in 19th century America, Professor of History Charles Irons aspired to bring the era to life in the classroom. He wanted his students to think more concretely about the realities of slavery that can be difficult to grasp. This quest led Irons to incorporate 3D-printed artifacts from the time period into his teaching.”
