Application of 3D pens in educations

3D pens are widely sold today but not for educational purposes. They are great tool for training children’s spatial imagination and creativity. Still, it seems to be difficult to manipulate the pen accurately in three dimensions, and even experts usually generate 3D models by drawing 2D sections and assembling them together to make the final model.

The developed system enables to use in 3D pens in a very simple way.


Chemistry lesson 3D notes

The spatial structure of chemical molecules is fundamental for their properties. The awareness of this structure make children better understand the natural processes and develop the imaginative thinking.

The modules let users build models of molecules step-by-step in three dimensions.


Offer and possibilities

The developed system consists of 9 elements and enables to draw any type of organic molecules. Construction modules have puzzle-like connectors and can be freely combined. Each element has a basically flat base and at least one substantially vertical post protruding from the base, having a contact point. The user connect the posts with 3D pen line what gives 3D chemical structure model with appropriate angles and distances between atoms.


The system is unique and marketable because of its new application.

Some successful demonstration lessons were carried out with the system in Cracow high schools. Modules used in class presentation were 3d printed.

JU scientists to develop biological agricultural support solutions
The project “Interactions between plants and microorganisms in response to the presence of potentially toxic metals, metalloids and silicon (Si)” by Prof. Katarzyna Turnau from the JU Faculty of Biology won a grant from the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange. The study aimed at replacing the widespread use of agrochemicals with biological agricultural support solutions will also involve researchers from Slovakia and Austria.
JU students will help people suffering from depression
Therapify is a mobile application designed to help depressed people. It was first conceived by Łukasz Pstrong, a graduate of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, and developed over the course of the last two years with collaborators from his university, the Jagiellonian University, and SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Warsaw.
Plakaty Demo Day II +
In January, we complete the project managed by CTT CITTRU as part of the program of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education - Incubator of Innovation +. We supported, among others, 18 research teams selected in the competition, that develop innovative technologies. Thanks to the funds granted by CTT CITTRU and hard work of technology transfer officers, pre-implementation research was financed, which increased the attractiveness of these inventions and investors interest in them. Take look at the gallery of posters for technologies, developed as part of the project. What do you think about it
