What if Isaac Newton Had Owned a 3D Printer?

Irvine, CA

Nonscriptum LLC is developing 3D printed models to teach key mathematical and scientific concepts hands-on, with minimal algebra. One inspiration was Isaac Newton’s illustrations in his (geometry-only) Principia Mathematica.  What if Newton had been able to access a 3D printer?  Over time, math and physics teaching became heavily weighted toward algebra, and less toward geometrical problem-solving.

We will talk about this work-in-progress as well as our lessons learned in the course of developing two books of 3D-printable math and science projects.  

Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron are the co-founders of Nonscriptum LLC, a Pasadena-based consulting and training firm focused on teaching educators and scientists how to use 3D printing, open-source electronics, and similar “maker” technologies.  They have also written six books (https://www.apress.com/us/search?query=horvath) on 3D printing, fashion tech, and more for the Apress imprint of Springer-Nature.
