This has inspired a unique partnership between MakerBotDonorsChoose.orgAmerica Makes, and Autodesk, which aims to put a 3D printer in every school across America.

Even though the real-world applications of 3D printing are still relatively limited, President Barack Obama pegged the technology as the spark that will ignite the next industrial era with a recent comment positing that “3D printing has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything.” This has inspired a unique partnership between MakerBotDonorsChoose.orgAmerica Makes, and Autodesk, which aims to put a 3D printer in every school across America.

Individuals and corporations interested in helping get MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers in schools can visit DonorsChoose.org, a crowd funding site just for teachers, and pledge to financially support the program. Teachers then register on DonorsChoose.org to receive a MakerBot Academy bundle.

“As a former teacher, I believe strongly in creating a new model for innovation,” said Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. “Instead of waiting for someone to create a product for you, you can create your own. It can change the whole paradigm of how our children will see innovation and manufacturing in America.”

MakerBot has already contributed its own resources to launch this education initiative, along with key partners.
