At MakerMade, we believe that STEAM and project-based learning are vital to education. That’s why we provide an education discount to schools, libraries and other education based organizations and offer our very own 3D Printing grant program for any educational organization or platform! Whether you are building a Makerspace or adding technology to your school or classroom, our affordable CNC machines and 3D Printers are the perfect way to get started, no matter your experience level.
WHY PROJECT-BASED LEARNING?
Digital manufacturing, such as CNC machines and 3D printers, are a vital part of the process of how things are made. By learning the design and mechanical skills required for their use, students gain real-world knowledge of the processes used at organizations around the world to prepare them for future careers or life-long hobbies.
Robots such as these are engaging tools for any curriculum and a fun way to learn advanced concepts. If you haven’t seen a 3rd grader’s eyes light up as they watch a 3D printer create a design they made on a computer, you’re missing out!
By working with these tools, students also learn transferable life skills. Perseverance, teamwork, design iteration, computational thinking, problem solving, and creativity – projects require all those and more. The possibilities are endless!
TRAINING & SUPPORT
We know how hard it is to learn and use new technology. That’s why we have a 30 day money-back guarantee and a one year warranty for educators. You can contact our support here or learn more on our resource page. We also offer live streams every week for new MakerMade CNC and 3D printer users!
MakerMade started as a passion for serving the maker community and that remains our first priority. We aim to provide the highest quality tools at affordable prices, especially for educators.
Our grant is to encourage imagination and innovation in digital manufacturing—and ultimately to award a deserving applicant with tools to help turn their educational goals into reality!
We offer grants to educational organizations for our 3D printers, CNC, or laser modules.
