The 3D printer is more than a toy-making robot. In the right hands, it is a powerful tool that engages the mind and expands our learning experience. It brings out the ideas in our head and turns them into tangible objects, ready for us to analyze and validate. The ability to recognize, embrace, and learn from our mistakes—and to do so in an accelerated, low-consequence manner—is invaluable to the growth of our next generation.
From critical thinking to creativity, the 3D printer is the perfect helper for learning the 21st-century skills necessary to solve the challenges of today and tomorrow.
To make the opportunity to develop these essential skills more readily available, we envision a learning environment where every school is equipped with one 3D printer for each computer in the computer lab. The 1:1:1 education bundle is a big step towards making this vision a reality.
