    3D Education Center in Businesses

    Hey everyone! So, our 3d printing company is about to move to a store front in a semi-major city and one of the things we're striving to do is create a space for kids to come learn about the process -- an education center if you will. We're hoping that will will having schools come in for field trips, ect. We would love any input from the 3d printing community on what elements we should have in this space. We will likely have some of our smaller printers there for kids to see along with the ability to possibly let them designs things for themselves. We're also hoping this is a way to reach out to the education world on the business aspect. Any ideas are welcome!

    Love that you're working to educate kids about 3D printing! I don't know what your setup is over there, but one of the things you can do is host your own Maker Challenge -- have kids sign up, teach them to use the printers and have them compete for the most innovative invention. Basically like this: ocMaker Challenge. You could also just host some 3D printing workshops for kids.

    Kids love the 3D printer and to keep them interested and involved, workshops are a great idea as well as interactive apps that let them draw and modify simple 3D objects. Or invest in a small 3D scanner that allows kids to scan and reproduce objects that they create. Creating a story around the workshop will help kids imaginations!
