2017 Elected winner in the Ultimaker Education Challenge

The Ultimaker Education Challenge is a competition for teachers in 3D-printing where you submit a plan for a lecture combining your field of work with 3D printing. I combined Computer Game Design with the printing of tangible objects for new ways of interacting with games. The prize is a 3D printer (an Ultimaker 3), supplies for a year, a course for this particular printer as well as a diploma.. The printer will help us in the courses we give in VIC where we let the students explore new ways of interaction.
