SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 26, 2013 The MakerBot crew has undertaken an educational mission to put an Atmel-powered MakerBot Desktop 3D Printer in every American school! The first ever MakerBot Academy initiative includes 3D printing bundles for classrooms and an awesome Thingiverse Challenge, along with generous support from both individuals and organizations.
Want to help get the word out? Tell all the teachers you know to register at DonorsChoose.org. You can also support a school and contribute to the effort by choosing a teacher – help get them set for the Next Industrial Revolution by participating in the Thingiverse Challenge, developing models teachers can use to improve science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education!
