3D Printing Educator Spotlight On: Megan Finesilver, 2nd Grade Teacher, Speaker and Curriculum Developer, Colorado

Every educator knows that teaching is more than a full-time job. The hours dedicated to their work go far beyond the traditional 9-5, 40 hours a week framework, to say nothing of the levels of energy the work requires. It’s all the more impressive, therefore, that Megan Finesilver does all that she does. In addition […]
