The original #SciFund Challenge provided the STEMulate Learning project with equipment that is currently supporting the World Community Grid (WCG), working on globally impacting issues such as disease treatments, fresh water resources, and clean energy technologies. This project aims to obtain an open-source community-developed 3D printer called a “Thing-o-Matic” for use in workshops, allowing young learners to go beyond merely drawing out their ideas – but to create them as actual objects! 3D printers transform designs in a computer into physical form that learners can take home, show off, and use to investigate what comes next based on their dreams and fanciful ideas.
We need your support to obtaining this do-it-yourself mechanism to be paired with the computer built from the #SciFund support. Tell your friends, and stop by the next phase of this exciting learning effort supported by individuals interested in guiding innovators of the future towards Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)!
