35 Schools Awarded 3D Printers Thanks to Dremel's #LearnMakeGive Contest: Educators Tell Us What Winning Means for Their Students

When I was in middle school shop class, we engraved plastic keychains. There was no design to them other than settling on the brief text we wanted and ensuring we didn’t get our preteen fingers caught in the heavy machinery. Kids today are also able to create their own personalized keychains — but they do […]

Y Soft's International Education Survey Finds That Majority of Schools Limit Student Access to 3D Printing

It’s a fact that students go to school to learn. They learn about historical events and how the government works, they learn how to perform mathematical equations, and they learn how express what they’ve learned through writing. Not always as often, they learn about music and art, and how to play sports like dodgeball and […]

Baiyun Winbo 3D Printing College Opens its Doors in China: Very first school of its kind

I’m a huge advocate of 3D printing in schools. I feel as though our future workforce will be better prepared for a future where additive manufacturing and 3D printing replaces more traditional means of prototyping and manufacturing, if they are presented with the resources needed at an early age. The more our kids know about […]
