In the frame of Delta Project, Corona de Aragon students attended at Aitiip facilities a workshop about 3D printing and new materials for drones.
Guillermo Vicente, 3D printing area responsible at Aitiip Technology Centre, showed to the student different technologys and machines available for 3D printing, and also which materials can be used to satisfy different requirements.
Within the technologies presented, FDM is the one which fabricate more robust parts and polyjet the more precise, having more aesthetic pieces.
This workshop have been celebrated in the frames of Delta project, an Erasmus + project, which has the following objectives:
- socializing (with case studies reconstructed for educational purposes) pupils and teachers of VET schools with drone technology, designing its integration with curricular STEM programs as teacher-led approach;
- co-designing with companies innovative working environments, developing the necessary resources for an open and transferable WBL for the realization of a project work “pupil-led”, in response to the challenges of application of drone technology;
- promoting among students, with a logic of gamification to develop entrepreneurship, a competition of ideas for design, development and implementation of new applications / uses of drones.
The Erasmus+ programm
Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad.
Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn't just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.
