## NEXPLORE 3D PRINTING

**Nexplore 3D Printing** , empowered by 3Doodler, makes learning limitless as students make concepts come alive from 2D to 3D! Using 3Doodler’s 3D printing pens, students break down complex topics into hands-on, approachable concepts, bringing science, technology, engineering, math, and design concepts to life. 3Doodler bridges differences in learning styles and engages students in a way that promotes teamwork, creative thinking, self-expression, and focus. After only using 3Doodler’s 3D printing pens for a short time, students will become engineers, designers, and scientists in their own classrooms, camps, or learning groups. With hundreds of free stencils and lesson plans available on the3doodler.com/edu, students will engage in experiential learning in all subject areas for hours.

**Disclaimer**

- The Nozzle of the 3Doodler Create+ (ages 14+) can become hot. DO NOT touch the Nozzle, or you may be burned!
- DO NOT allow the Nozzle near or in contact with flammable materials.
- Inform others in the area that the Pen is hot and should not be touched.
