In-kind support to USA, Canada, and International primary and secondary schools (for students ages 8-18) for curriculum and materials to support STEAM programs that educate youth on the value of additive manufacturing. Schools will receive donations of polymer 3D printers and related educational curriculum.
For K-12, primary and secondary schools, the program aims to build an ecosystem for 3D printing in education by networking students, machines and content via an online platform, the Polar Cloud.
Educators and students from participating schools join the Polar Cloud to access tools, software and applications in a collaborative and secure environment. Packages awarded include a Polar Cloud premium account, a Polar Cloud enabled 3D printer from Dremel, Flashforge or Monoprice, rolls of filament, and new for the 2019/2020 cycle, a range of learning and Tinkercad software resources from Autodesk.
