Taiscéalaí (Tech4Kids Activities for the Erasmus+ Project SAM)


Taiscéalaí is a 3D Printing Challenge delivered as part of the Erasmus + Project Sector Skills Strategy in Additive Manufacturing’s (SAM) Tech4Kids dissemination activities, which target to raise awareness of Additive Manufacturing (AM) for the existing workforce, students and children.




Taiscéalaí, the Irish for explorer, seeks to achieve equality of learning and access to 3D printing education at the primary school level. Globally there is a deficit of graduates in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and a disjointed approach across Europe to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) STEAM education. This project seeks to offer a roadmap that makes 3D printing education easy and fun for teachers and students alike.




This 3D Printing Challenge – Taiscéalaí introduces primary school teachers and students to 3D design and 3D printing around Ireland. It is an accessible, innovative 8-week program that motivates young people to pursue education and career opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), while building selfconfidence, knowledge, and life skills through project-based learning.
