STEM, STEAM & 3-D Printers

This year, at the Texas Computer Educators Association conference it seemed like every vendor had a 3-D printer. Some were huge, some were small, but they were "the thing" this year.

There were also a lot of booths selling maker kits, STEM kits and materials and STEAM resources.

The sessions for Maker-Spaces, STEM and STEAM programs were all very well attended.
