Robo Acquires MyStemKits, Will Offer Comprehensive 3D Printing Education for All Ages

Share this Article

As technology advances and becomes a bigger part of every industry and sector, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and STEAM (including Art) education becomes more and more important for children of every age. The earlier kids can begin learning technological skills such as 3D printing, the better, so that they can be prepared to enter the ever-changing, technology-centered workforce. Atlanta company MyStemKits is currently the provider of the largest online library of STEM curriculum in the world, including 3D printable kits for K-12 schools. All of its curriculum is developed to meet Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

3D printer manufacturer Robo prioritizes education as well, and today the company announced that it has acquired MyStemKits.

“The promise of 3D printing in education has yet to be fulfilled,” said Robo CEO Ryan Legudi. “For teachers we have spoken to, it is still complicated to incorporate 3D printing effectively into the classroom with the current offerings. With our Robo 3D printers combined with MyStemKits 240+ turn-key 3D printable lessons, professional development and training for educators, we know that we have the key that will give educators the opportunity to be successful with 3D printing in the classroom.”

In its launch phase within the state of Florida, MyStemKits achieved a 97% success rating from teachers implementing project-based learning with 3D printers.

“MyStemKits was started with the intention of revolutionizing how 3D printers are used in the K-12 classroom,” said Laron Walker, Founder of MyStemKits. “We have worked hard to make 3D printing plug-n-play, through an easy-to-use technical experience, backed by exceptional content and curriculum. I’m excited that the company is poised to reach its full potential as part of the Robo family. Having an end-to-end solution for K-12 has always been a dream. Combining the world’s best 3D printing content library, along with best-in-breed 3D printers, will open the flood gates of opportunity for educators and students around the world.”

Robo will offer educational bundles that include its 3D printers, a supply of filament, one-year subscriptions to MyStemKits, and additional professional development and online learning. Simple to use and with plenty of safety features, Robo’s 3D printers are well-suited to use in the classroom.

“We all know the impact 3D printing can have for students in the classroom,” said Braydon Moreno, Co-Founder of Robo. “It just needs to be easy to implement. If you go to MyStemKits.com, select your grade level, choose a lesson, click a file, and stream it to your Robo R2 directly from the platform without needing to adjust any settings–that’s magical. That’s the promise of 3D printing for teachers.”

Robo has formed other partnerships to further 3D printing in education, and this latest partnership with MyStemKits will allow students of all ages to learn 3D printing in an easy, hands-on way.

MyStemKits has likewise partnered with several 3D printing companies, including D3CRYPT3D, Dremel, and 3DPrinterOS. As more and more companies work together from the 3D printing and educational industries, schools will be able to better prepare students with the skills they need for the workforce of the future.
