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 […]

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 […]
