Chance for a 3-D Printer
1st Maker Space is offering a Prusa i3 Mk2 3D Printer Kit at no charge, value $250, to an Indiana Educator who can best describe, in 200 words or less, how they will make use of the printer in their K8 classroom to promote creativity and problem solving. This is a *kit* and comes with all the parts, software, instructions and tools you’ll need - including a spool of PLA filament. Upload a picture of your makerspace or STEM lab where the printer will go to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have one.
If you would like help assembling your kit, you will also receive, at no charge, a 6 hr day of professional development during which you can share with other educators the joy of building a 3D printer from scratch! Our ‘Build a 3D Printer from Scratch’ PD training events are being scheduled all over the state so stay tuned for a date/location convenient to you. (See http://www.1stmakerspace.com/3d-printer-build-class for details.)
