WHAT THE 2020 AUDIENCE IS SAYING

“[The Summit] gave me lots of ideas on how I could meaningfully integrate 3D printing and design thinking into my courses even without access to a 3D printer. I really enjoyed the student talks and empowering future leaders”

- Karen, 9-12 grade Educator

“It was very informative and inspiring. I have been wanting to do more with 3D printing for my [students], which goes a little farther than the basics I can show them. I got some great ideas, and look forward to working with my [students] on 3D printing projects”

- 9-12 grade Educator

"Exceeded my expectations! The speakers were very dynamic and contributed amazing examples of learning. The structure of the summit was simple and very easy to navigate throughout the day. Thank you for doing this!!"

- Jonathan 6-8 grade teacher
