During the 2017 Engineering-a-Future activities at Tennessee Tech University, a set of 3D Pen activities has been organized for the female Middle School Students (5th and 6th grades) so that they learn more about the engineering fields and their practices in daily life. Various Additive Manufacturing technologies have been presented to students, and students have toured the lab facilities. During the 45-minute timeframe, students were grouped and constructed 3D art objects (butterfly, necklace, bird, and glasses) using the available 3D Pens. It was observed that the students had high enthusiasm about the new technology. This study will present the utilization of 3D Printing Pens in various practices, and report the current advantageous and disadvantageous of 3D Pen exercises detected through recent studies.
