Pioneer Program launch: Great news for educators passionate about 3D printing

Exciting news today for educators and all of the visitors to our site — the launch of a new Ultimaker Education website, including resource pages, a multi-author educator blog, and a kickoff of our Education Pioneer Program!

From the Pioneer Program announcement:

Today we introduce 58 educators, from Kindergarten teachers to college professors, from Hawaii to Massachusetts, and with 3D printing experience from beginner to seasoned pro, who will share their 3D printing journeys on the new Ultimaker Education website.

The Ultimaker Education Pioneers are a community of educators of who are committed to bringing digital fabrication to the classroom, fostering student engagement, and sharing their ideas with others. They are leading the way by developing and sharing 3D printing lessons, programs, labs, and classroom experiences.

Ultimaker is proud to support this group of educators and to feature and promote their work, regardless of what kinds of 3D printers they use in their classrooms. We believe that everyone benefits from an open community that shares ideas, resources, experience, and knowledge.

Ultimaker Pioneer Program

The Pioneer Program and the new Ultimaker Education website emerged from six months of intensive research, interviews, surveys and one-on-one discussions with educators passionate about the role of desktop 3D printing in education. And what we learned was more than simply a list of what resources educators were looking for – we amassed an equally long list of ways these talented educators wished to contribute resources back to their peers.
