The 3Doodler has turned out to be quite a versatile tool, being used by everyone from hobbyists to professional artists to create everything from tiny knickknacks to full-sized sculptures. The company’s major focus, however, has become education. 3Doodler releases new STEM-centered educational packages on a regular basis, and its products have been used in more than 5,000 classrooms by over 300,000 students. DonorsChoose.org has also placed 3Doodler kits in more than 600 middle- and low-income classrooms.

Today 3Doodler is introducing its latest product line for the classroom. The 3Doodler Create+ EDU Learning Pack and 3Doodler Start EDU Learning Pack were designed for and with teachers. Each one consists of 6 or 12 3Doodler pens (Create or Start, depending on the package) and 600 or 1,200 strands of plastic, as well as other tech accessories, lesson plans and classroom materials. The kits are specially designed for classrooms from kindergarten to 12th grade.

“All our 3D pens are made to be as simple and easy to learn as possible, avoiding obstacles between a user and their ability to create,” stated 3Doodler. “This quality had to be carried through every aspect of the new EDU Learning Pack product experience, from the moment the teacher and students open their boxes, to when they make their first doodle. And what better way to truly understand the needs of teachers and students in the classroom, than to ask teachers?”

The company is also releasing the 3Doodler Create+ EDU Teacher Experience Kit and 3Doodler EDU Start Teacher Experience Kit, which are designed to be trial packs for teachers considering introducing the 3Doodler into their classrooms. Each of the Teacher Experience Kits includes one 3Doodler pen and a sampler of plastic, as well as abbreviated lesson plans and classroom materials.

“These products represent 3Doodler’s continued commitment to inspire students pursuing STEM interests and passions,” said Leah Wyman, 3Doodler’s Head of EDU. “We pride ourselves on creating accessible 3D products and making it fun to learn in the classroom.”

The 3Doodler EDU Learning Packs will be available at 3Doodler.com/edu as well as other retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy at prices ranging from $349 to $1,199. The Teacher Experience Kits will be available from 3Doodler.com/edu and select education-based resellers with an MSRP of $29 and $59. 

According to a recent survey of more than 7,000 school librarians by School Library Journal, middle or junior high schools spent the most on maker supplies or equipment — an average of $1,076, compared to $743 in elementary schools and $700 in high schools. 3Doodler has priced its Learning Packs and Teacher Experience Kits to fit into school budgets. 

The new 3Doodler EDU Learning Packs and 3Doodler EDU Teacher Experience Kits come recommended by Kokoa, one of Europe’s leading agencies for the evaluation and recognition of EdTech.

Multiple case studies have shown that 3Doodler products incentivize performance among students, diversify teaching methods, stimulate kinesthetic and visual learners, improve concentration among students, including those with ADHD, and level the playing field between male and female students, particularly in STEM subjects.
