Our Pioneer Programme has been created to support the growth of 3D printing in education by sharing valuable classroom experiences and acquiring feedback to help us develop the best possible curriculum. By becoming a pioneer, you’ll not only get free access to PrintLab, but you’ll be helping to shape our future, whilst supporting the wider community with your educational insights and opinions.
In addition to being an active teacher at a school or University, the requirements to become a pioneer include:
  • Answering a series of feedback questions from PrintLab at the beginning of each month. This might be questions to help us develop our curriculum or questions for a collaborative blog, where we share the opinions of our pioneers to the wider community. An example of a collaborative blog can be viewed here.
  • Collaborating with PrintLab on a minimum of 1 blog/story per year (E.g. a case study like this example)
  • Regular social media posting about how you are using PrintLab in your school/organisation (tagging @weareprintlab).
