A non-profit that’s teaching girls in Africa to use 3D printing, a kindergarten teacher who sparks young children’s interest in STEM topics, and a university student who developed a pet wheelchair as her master’s thesis: These are the inspiring winners of MakerBot’s #MakerMilestones contest. They show the positive impact of desktop 3D printing, especially in education.
This past April, MakerBot celebrated a major milestone: shipping more than 100,000 3D printers worldwide. To thank our customers and community, we asked makers to share their most important 3D design or 3D printing milestones on social media with a chance at winning a MakerBot Replicator® Desktop 3D Printer. And boy did they share—in one inspiring post after another!
