When you are not allowed to bring an archeological artifact back home with you, what can you do to still be able to share it with your students? Drs. Travis Doering and Lori Collins at USF's AIST center solved the challenge by using 3D. Armed with a portable 3D scanner, a laptop, Geomagic Studio and some really strong bug spray, they have been scanning archeological artifacts and sites throughout South America, and bringing the data back for analysis, research and even to be 3D printed so that students can more easily understand the minute details of the finds. The result is that they have started to revolutionize the way they teach their students back in Tampa, resulting in greater understanding and faster learning. Read the case study.
