The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of the activities designed with three-dimensional (3D) printing technology on the teaching of the sixth grade unit of systems in our body and to determine the views of students on this technology. In this study, a quasi-experimental design with pre-test post-test control group was used. A total of 60 sixth grade students participated in the study. The study was carried out 6 weeks and within the scope of a science course. During the study, lessons in the experimental group were processed using the activities developed with 3D printing technology while lessons in the control group were processed using the current program. Data were then analysed using SPSS statistics program and content analysis. The findings of the study revealed that the experimental group was more achievement than control group.
