logo-mystem-newMyStemKits has been on our radar for quite some time, as we’ve watched them gain a variety of partnerships and collaborations with 3DPrinterOS, a partnership with Florida State University and their CPALMS programs, as well as starting a Kickstarter campaign meant to raise funds so that they can create a platform allowing anyone to order their educational kits. The campaign, close already to reaching half its goal of only $5K, is gearing down on October 9th.

What’s on MyStemKits’ radar is what’s most important for the long term: the educational system. All of their latest partnerships provide avenues to seeing that students are provided not only with access to 3D printing but also allowed to explore their creativity galore, while experiencing challenge, which results in greater confidence and a willingness to keep pushing their intellectual limits.

Feature2_FullyEnclosedWith the Kickstarter campaign, they hope to create an online portal which will allow users with any 3D printer at all to access and 3D print from their library of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) kits–of which there are 50 in total so far, with constant plans for expansion to the library.

Now, they’re forging a valuable partnership with Dremel, another company we have been following for quite some time as they’ve embarked on a recent partnership with HP’s Sprout division, partnered up for 3D printing contests, and most recently created some incredible 3D printed miniatures. The two companies, both obviously dynamic in their own right, have a lot to offer one another. With the ensuing partnership, anyone who owns a Dremel 3D Idea Builder will have access to the MyStemKits library. The collaboration is offering a great opportunity for all Dremel users in that specifically they will have unlimited and free access to ten kits (no matter the outcome on Kickstarter).

The Dremel 3D Idea Builder is strongly tied to the educational system as well, designed for just that venue, and with a pricetag of under $1K making it attractive for teachers, schools, and hobbyists as well. The Dremel 3D Idea Builder is user-friendly and gives schools a good turn-key option for introducing 3D printing to younger students, as well as older. Some of its key features are as follows:orang

  • 100 micron build resolution
  • Removable build platform
  • User-friendly software
  • Color touchscreen
  • Pre-installed extruder
  • One year warranty

All of the kits are part of a vetted curriculum written by the MyStemKits partners at FSU, consisting of both teachers and experts. Users have access to kids offering items like the:OIuYTSnWALAhNZsRJSSRMO21Frh6-_IFfzJrGovpXOg

  • Build-it-yourself catapult
  • Hands-on proof of the Pythagorean Theorem
  • Loaded dice
