3D Printer Loan Scheme
As part of our mission to bring cutting-edge technology into education, we offer a FREE 3D printer loan scheme. This year we have loaned approximately 130 3D printer units to our community, ensuring everybody had the opportunity to benefit from 3D printing.
Training, Professional Development and Workshops
The 2019 Teach Primary award for STEM.
We were also shortlisted for Teach Secodary and Bett 2019 awards.
We’ve inspired over 120 minds from 8 schools with 41 3D printing expert panel members in our classroom at the three day TCT Show.
Community engagement and support
We worked with 9 schools in the Salford area to train teachers and technicians in the art of 3D printing and inspire pupils with 3D printing workshops in conjunction with the University of Salford and Morson International on the Make in Salford project.
During 2019, we have supported institutions across the country, including libraries, makerspaces, schools, colleges and universities. Inluding Lancashire Libraries through a pilot project, The HackSpace, Edge Hill, Manchester University, Coleg Llandrillo, National Star, Belmont Mill Hill, Wyndham Primary Academy, Manchester Communication Academy and more!
2019 has seen the culmination of a 2 year ecraft 2 learn research project, the development of a rocket made of over 600 3D printed rings with some coming from around the world which was constructed at Liverpool Makefest.
Lots of exciting partnership working including the launch of the UK’s first Primary School 3D printing education hub in partnership with Rolls-Royce and shared a stand at the New Scientist Live 2019 with them as event partners and being named as Diversity and Inclusion partner of choice for The Blair Project.
We’ve shared 12 free new resources and published over 20 blogs which we’ve shared again below for you to enjoy and inspire creativity with 3d printing as we enter the new decade and welcome the opportunities 2020 brings.
