Looks like I'm about to break out in a rap song, but honestly, I was just talking about funding technology!

Yo! Looks like I’m about to break out in a rap song, but honestly, I was just talking about funding technology!

In addition to the free “Getting Started” PDF, we’d like to share some information from one of our conference presentations. The following was presented at the 3D Printer World Expo in Burbank, CA, in Jan 2014. Debby presented with Joe Scott who works with Afinia. At the conference, we had three key lessons or learning objectives:

  1. Participants will become familiar with 3D printing equipment options
  2. Participants will learn how to approach funding sources in both formal and informal ways
  3. Participants will be able to estimate the pay-back period for their 3D printer purchase

Another resource with a few pages on grant applications is this book: Invent to Learn, 3d-invent-to-learnMaking, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom

By Sylvia Libow Martinez & Dr. Gary Stager

There’s a technological and creative revolution underway. Amazing new tools, materials and skills turn us all into makers. Using technology to make, repair or customize the things we need brings engineering, design and computer science to the masses. Fortunately for educators, this maker movement overlaps with the natural inclinations of children and the power of learning by doing. The active learner is at the center of the learning process, amplifying the best traditions of progressive education. This book helps educators bring the exciting opportunities of the maker movement to every classroom.
