A report from New Media Consortium Horizon Report 2015 recently identified a top trend in education as advancing cultures of change and innovation. MakerBot sees the adoption of desktop 3D printing in the classroom as a way to create a culture of innovation, stimulate creativity, and prepare the leaders of tomorrow. To help attain such a goal, MakerBot announced its newest offering, the MakerBot Starter Lab, to the marketplace. It is designed to get a school or organization’s 3D printing capabilities up and running quickly and efficiently to accelerate innovation among its users.
The MakerBot Starter Lab provides a scalable, reliable 3D printing lab that is easy to implement. Available as a single purchase, it includes MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers, a MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner, MakerBot MakerCare Protection Plans for all hardware, a supply of parts and materials, and a custom-tailored, on-site MakerBot Learning workshop.
