Development for Teachers
Get a Hands-On 3D Printing Workshop & 3D-Printer Build In Your School
Why should experiential education be only for the students? Teachers deserve their own path to DIY greatness.
- We will come to your school,
- guide you to build the award-winning JellyBOX 3D printer,
- and walk you through the entire 3D printing process.
NO-NONSENSE DIY 3D PRINTING EDUCATION
We Come to Your School
- How great is that?!
- Have your teachers and students learn in their home environment; the knowledge transfer will smile upon you.
- Inspire your whole community; not just the one teacher with a travel grant
- Save time and money.
For Both Teachers and Students
- We offer the possibility to have both student and faculty groups building 3d printers alongside in the same workshop!
- ‘Learning together’ as a way of fostering a communal ‘making mindset’ is proving especially effective for schools starting making and tinkering programs anew.
- This feature is Completely Optional. We are perfectly comfortable running a more classic professional development with teachers only.
3D Printing Bootcamp
- We survey the whole 3D Printing 101 including
- Overview of the industry and technologies (Hype vs Reality)
