In order to increase motivation and implement digital literacy in the field of scientific disciplines at different educational levels, a practical experience has been designed and carried out with students of the 4th year of Biology. The practice consists of two parts, from the point of the student, one of observation of the procedures for obtaining three-dimensional models and 3D printing, and another of active participation. The materials used for the application of scanning, modeling and 3D printing techniques were paleobiological remains, which are a transversal resource in the biological and geological sciences. To obtain three-dimensional models, we will use two techniques, laser scanner (in the first part) and photogrammetry (in the second part). The models generated directly by the table scanner were printed in the classroom. After the experience, a motivation and creativity survey was conducted, obtaining very positive results.
