We’ve all been there, working in our EAST classroom when all of a sudden the 3D printer, yea you know the one, starts malfunctioning and Mr./Mrs. Facilitator has to go and try to troubleshoot like the 3D printer genius they are…Well, alumni Colby Taverner decided to leave one final legacy before he left, and so he wrote and received a grant from the Dover Public Education Foundation to purchase us a brand new NWA3D A31 3D Printer. Our MakerBot still works, but as we progress as an EAST program, we know it is time for something newer and more advanced so we can continue to expand our printing capacity. Some of our students were able to physically set it up yesterday and this Thursday they have an appointment with NWA3D so they can set up the software. Overall we’re really excited and hope to be posting some of our new creations soon!
