    Does your Kid's School have a 3D Printer Yet

    I'm just wondering as I see and hear about schools around the world beginning to get 3D printers for their students. I'm wondering truly what percentage of schools are actually utilizing 3D printing. Anyone here have kids in school or know of schools which are already utilizing 3D printing?

    We have 3 in our STEM classroom. I run a 3D CAD class and we also use them in our game design class.

    No, there are any 3D printers in my child's school. Here we have only basic computers and it's only in couple of classrooms

    As far as I know, only college (Dutch: HBO)/university level schools have 3D printers.
    Kids I speak to do know about 3D printers. They understand how they work and soon after, they will be giving you printing assignments.
    Some US secondary schools are starting with Tinkercad and 3D printing for 10-14 year olds, they have a need for educational material.

    This is a good article on the topic:

    My kid's high school shop class just purchased a delta. Apparently they're having some trouble using it effectively though.
