High school students' lack of knowledge regarding 3D printers.
Today, my teacher announced to my art class that: "Some architects will be coming in to show us their 3D printer that they built".
Then, practically every student started to say things such as: "what the hell is that?".
The teacher then said that: "it's like a printer, but it prints things out in 3D".
After that, one student asked: "so it like prints stuff out on paper in 3D?"
So the teacher replied: "no, it prints objects out in 3D".
Then, the same student asked again: "so it prints stuff out onto paper in 3D.....?".
It went on like this for about 5 minutes, until the teacher got tired of explaining from her limited knowledge of 3D printers.
After the teacher managed to end the conversation, I heard murmurs from the others saying things like: "I don't get it..?" and "That doesn't make any sense..".
Has anyone else encountered this?
(not that I'm an expert on 3D printers or anything..)
