This isn’t really about broadband – but I had to share the opportunity from Tech Republic for teachers to get a 3D printer. Imagine what a kid could do!
MakerBot Academy is STEM initiative to put a MakerBot desktop 3D printer in every classroom in America. Any full-time teacher can register a campaign to get one through DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that helps educators crowdfund for things they need in their classrooms. Once the project reaches its goal, the purchase order is sent to MakerBot. Brooklyn Tech, pictured here, is a high school in NYC that used MakerBots to further their engineering curriculum.
