MakerBot announces the new MakerBot Educators program, an infrastructure that aims to unite teachers using 3D printing to share content and best practice and further the adoption of 3D printing in schools.
Eligible candidates will need to have contributed to Thingiverse Education and have access to a MakerBot device in order to participate. Members can participate in the MakerBot Education team's monthly missions, designed to increase student access to the technology, expand the content available for classroom use, and promote the benefits of design thinking and STEM learning. Participating educators will receive a welcome kit with MakerBot gear, and can earn prizes like extra MakerBot PLA filament by participating in monthly missions.
