Solidoodle is proud to announce Solidoodle U, a comprehensive program just for teachers. Solidoodle U provides schools with all they need to bring 3D printing into the classroom, with affordable education packages and free materials to get students 3D printing right away.
“3D printing lets a student develop an idea from initial concept through design and iteration phases to final tested parts, all from a computer,” says Solidoodle CEO Sam Cervantes. “Teachers have been some of our earliest customers because they recognize our products as powerful tools for hands-on learning across a broad range of subject areas, from art and design to science and engineering. Solidoodle U expands our products’ accessibility for the classroom with even more affordable options and new resources developed for educators.”
Solidoodle will offer two education packages for its 3rd and 4th Generation models, its most popular 3D printers, as part of the Solidoodle U program. The Solidoodle 4 package includes the company’s newest 3D printer featuring a sleek enclosure and new extruder design with two 2-lbs spools of filament, a total $1085 value, for just $899. The Solidoodle 3 package includes Solidoodle’s open-design printer with one 2-lbs spool of filament, a total $842 value, for just $699.
Solidoodle U also offers educators free access to its growing online curriculum library and will utilize the company’s file-sharing website Solidoodles.com to host 3D models and allow educators to share their own corresponding lesson plans with the online educational community.
