From kindergarten classrooms to college makerspaces, educators across the nation are incorporating desktop 3D printing into their educational plans with great success. In PS 121 in New York, educators are peppering their architectural lessons with real-world examples that include the MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer. All 11 schools in Montclair, NJ, received MakerBot Replicators so K-12 students will have the opportunity to learn 3D design and printing through their educational journey, which will better prepare them for future college-level coursework.
Desktop 3D printers offer greater educational opportunities for students and educators alike, but allocating funds for one or more can be a challenge within some school budgets. Educational grants are an excellent resource for the funds needed to purchase a MakerBot 3D Printer. However, the process of finding and applying for these awards isn’t easy. MakerBot has compiled applicable grants into a list to assist schools and educators.
