0 Things: Diversity, Opportunity & 3D Printing

0 Things is a call to action for students, educators and makers to design and share 3D models that celebrate diversity, social justice and equality. Even with over 2 million things, searches of popular 3D printing repository Thingiverse often find 0 relevant models for topics related to identity, heritage and culture. Each empty search is an opportunity for students to make a difference in the world.

0 Things was first given as a Pecha-Kucha style presentation at the Construct 3D conference at Duke University in May 2017.

I have submitted a proposal to SXSWEdu to talk about 0 Things in more detail in a Future20 presentation. Voting for proposals for SXSWEdu will open around August 15th. I hope to spread the ideas in the video in a variety of different venues.

Educators should feel free to adapt the idea of 0 Things to use in their own presentations and for their own audiences. The video itself should be shared using the following license.
