Construct3D 2017 has ended
avatar for Ultimaker


From Ultimaker’s very beginning in 2011, our mission has been to empower and inspire people around the world with our development of open source 3D printers and tools. And thanks to our talented team and our engaged community, that’s just what we’re doing.

Ultimaker offers a wide range of benefits to educators. Not only do we sell a reliable, easy-to-use, award winning line of 3D printers, we offer North American educators who are passionate about bringing 3D printing and design into K-16 and informal education settings the opportunity to connect and collaborate with each other through the Pioneer Program. This program is made up of educators with a variety of 3D experience – they may have been working with 3D printing for years, or they may just be starting out.

What the Pioneers have in common is a desire to improve their teaching, and to share ideas with others. They are passionate people who love teaching and sharing their knowledge and expertise in person and online. They publish content on Ultimaker’s education page (http://ultimaker.com/education, have access to an education slack channel, and show up at events so that they can benefit from each other’s experiences.

Whether you’re just getting started in 3D printing or just looking for new ideas for an existing 3D printing curriculum, the Ultimaker Education website,  a repository of various types of content contributed by teachers, is an invaluable resource. The site is printer agnostic and no login is required. By visiting ultimaker.com/education you can gain insights from educational blog posts written by teachers for teachers, resource sections, which include: files to print, lesson ideas and starters, grant opportunities (How do you find money to start a 3D printing program in your school or classroom?), and a reading list, to just mention a few.

Also, our resellers offer discounts for educators and educational institutions. Please let us know if we can connect you to one of our resellers for further details.
