Ultimaker GB launches 3D printing initiative for UK schools

Schools across Great Britain will have the opportunity to get ahead of the grade in the revolutionary new technology of 3D printing!

Ultimaker has already been working with education institutions in the UK and with schools on the continent to great success and is now about to officially launch into the Education sector.

A national campaign called CREATE Education Project is being rolled as 2014 starts, with schools eager to provide students the best current learning opportunities 3d printing has to offer.

Ultimaker's CREATE initiative has received fantastic feedback from teachers and pupils have been blown away by how easy the Ultimaker technology is to use and the subsequent opportunities it presents!

Ultimaker's open source technology and the collaborative approach on offer mean every student can engage in the learning and development process. 

" Marie McDonagh, Curriculum Leader at Cleethorpes Academy said "We ordered 5 Ultimaker 2 printers after an impressive workshop run by the Ultimaker team where students were able to produce their own 3D designs in under 2 hours.  We have incorporated 3D printing in to both Key Stage 3 and 4 curriculums to give students experience of this exciting new technology.  The Ultimaker 2 printers represent good value and the support and advice from Ultimaker has been excellent."

Ultimaker will provide a free no obligation loan of an original Ultimaker to schools and are seeking 50 selective institutions across the country to be appointed as 3D Hubs to share 3d printing with everyone!
