MakerBot and Partners Are Leading the Charge to Crowd Source A MakerBot Desktop 3D Printer in Every School in America

“We are so grateful to MakerBot and its partners for undertaking this mission,” said Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose.org. “Thanks to this movement, hundreds of thousands of students will have the opportunity to make and innovate in their own classrooms.”

“Initiatives like the MakerBot Academy are further examples of how New York City’s technology community is leading the way to help young people be better prepared for their future careers,” said Rachel Haot, New York City’s Chief Digital Officer. “Collaboration and education are key components to keep our workforce competitive and innovative.”

Here’s how it works:

Visit DonorsChoose.org and pledge your support. Individuals and corporations can help fund the MakerBot Academy 3D Printing package by making a tax-deductible donation via DonorsChoose.org.

Then tell schoolteachers about the MakerBot Academy program and encourage them to register on DonorsChoose.org right away. Students and their community can also help teachers raise the additional funds they need to bring the MakerBot Academy 3D Printing bundle into the classroom.

Participate in the Thingiverse Challenge to develop models teachers can use to improve Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education.
