Back to School – MakerBot Teacher Giveaway!
Are you a teacher that could use a MakerBot? It’s almost time to go back to school and so we’re giving 10 teachers each a MakerBot Cupcake CNC Deluxe Kit with standard MK4 Extruder and a bonus Heated Build Platform kit.
Before August 23rd send an email to [email protected] with the following info. We may publish the ideas/lesson plans on the blog or wiki after the contest ends.
- Your name
- Your school’s name
- The address you’d like the MakerBot sent to if you are chosen
- A paragraph describing how you would integrate the MakerBot into your curriculum. Include some description of the learning environment and what you teach
- A lesson plan that you will implement if you get a MakerBot
Both me, Bre Pettis, (a former art teacher in Seattle Public Schools) and Charles Pax (a former Newark New Jersey physics teacher) will evaluate the information submitted and our criteria for the giveaway will be clarity, innovation, and curriculum integration.
Teachers who get a MakerBot will be expected to join the MakerBot Educators Google Group and document their experience with the MakerBot so that the other teachers can be inspired!
If you are not a teacher, but know a teacher who would benefit from having a MakerBot, please pass this along to them!
Our goal is to get more MakerBots into teachers hands and give them creative tools that will inspire young people to use their imagination and creativity. If you questions about the contest, leave a comment!
Update: Do not be fooled by the photo above of young children. Any teacher at any level is encouraged to apply.
