Introducing the MakerBot SKETCH 3D Printers

Meet the all-new MakerBot SKETCH Classroom 3D printers!

Teachers are facing significant challenges in preparing students for a rapidly changing job market. Skill sets such as problem-solving and design thinking are in high demand; however, many students today lack those skills.

3D printing can be used to teach critical thinking, but there is a sharp learning curve to using 3D printing in the classroom successfully. Teachers and students need to learn to use the 3D printer, integrate the technology into their curriculum, and manage 3D printing resources in the classroom. In addition, the challenging printer-to-student ratio in a classroom requires a different workflow set up for effective deployment.

“With SKETCH, we are changing the way 3D printing is used in schools and advancing the possibilities of learning to boost student innovation.”

Nadav Goshen, CEO, MakerBot

The SKETCH Classroom addresses the challenges of 3D printing in the classroom with a solution that includes interactive certification courses for both teachers and students that trains them on how to use the MakerBot SKETCH 3D printer, create and implement engaging curriculum, and teach design thinking and problem-solving with 3D printing.

Maximize Student Success with the Dual MakerBot SKETCH 3D Printer Setup

The MakerBot SKETCH dual printer setup allows for a much greater student to printer ratio, allowing you to have more student projects printing at once and ensuring that everyone gets a chance to have their designs printed within the project timeline.

For educators that are working on distance learning projects with their students due to the COVID-19 school closures, having two 3D printers available to the teacher to print student designs during their working hours is an incredibly great asset.
