This platform features 3D printing creative projects, workbooks, tutorials and teacher training guides, and will now be integrated into the CraftBot Plus 3D printer ecosystem.
“In recent months, we have been testing the CraftBot Plus 3D printer to ensure our curriculum is packaged with a product that is well suited for the classroom. [It] has exceeded our expectations in terms of ease-of-use, reliability, safety and print quality,” explained Jason Yeung, Co-Founder at PrintLab.
“We have a range of important and exciting themes planned for our lesson plan library this year, including designing for disability and circular economy projects, which we look forward to sharing with existing and new CraftBot users.”
The PrintLab Classroom
Last year, PrintLab launched PrintLab Classroom with the aim to help “prepare the next generation” for their future careers as well as provide teachers with “engaging” content for use in the classroom. Following this, the learning program became available in languages such as Polish, Spanish and Chinese.
The curriculum is currently taught in an estimated 300 schools worldwide. Now, the CraftBot-PrintLab Education Package will access CraftUnique’s reseller network in over 20 countries. The partners will also be working together to develop further translations to accelerate the platform’s global community.
The CraftBot-PrintLab Education Package
The CraftBot-PrintLab Education package includes a Plug&Play CraftBot 3D printer (CraftBot Plus or CraftBot XL), safety accessories with a HEPA filter (dome, door), 1-year access to PrintLab Classroom training and curriculum, a PrintLab Certification Course (online), Craftware slicer software, PLA filaments, and 3D printer accessories.
“Slowly but surely, the 3D revolution took off within education, but the real breakthrough has so far been hindered by a serious obstacle: apart from a few ground-breaking and enthusiastic teachers, most got stuck at the start,” said Éva Szász, Marketing Manager at CraftBot.
“After months of research and seeking, through an enthusiastic English teacher acting as an intermediary, CraftBot has finally found PrintLab Classroom who can create the missing link with their self-developed curricula.”
