HP & KiraKira3D Aim to Close STEM Gender Gap

Today HP announced its partnership with KiraKira3D, a foundation that is working to close the gender gap in STEM by teaching girls the technical skills needed to master 3D design, modeling, and printing skills.

HP and KiraKira3D will work together to develop a series of video lessons to teach 3D design skills using the Sprout Pro by HP 3D scanning and printing platform, and will allow students to print their designs using HP Multi Jet Fusion printers.

Founder and CEO Suz Somersall founded KiraKira3D with the ultimate goals being to get more STEM curricula into classrooms, and inspire girls to pursue careers in STEM careers by encouraging them to create sunglasses, designer jewelry, and household items using these 3D technologies.
