3D Printers for Education
I LOVE using the Lulzlessons in my STEM classroom. Not only do they help my students meet our engineering standards, but the detailed directions, sample files, and rubrics found in the Lulzlessons also make them a breeze to use.
- Dave Coster, Mathematics & Technology Teacher - Cedar Grove
Mr. Coster utilizes LulzBot 3D printers at his school to make meaningful impact with his students. He says this, "Can we print props for the play? YES! Can we print fundraiser items? YES! Can we print prototypes using different materials? YES! Thank you LulzBot for helping me say YES! to my students. A Sidekick 3D printer + Lulzlessons = Engaged students developing meaningful solutions."
3D printing is being used by different industries in today's world. It creates opportunities for our students to gain real life experience by improving their creativity and problem solving skills. No matter what curriculum is used, LulzBot 3D printers can be integrated with any class for authentic learning and hands-on activities.
- Elif Ergul, PLTW Gateway Teacher - Harmony Public Schools
Through their use of LulzBot 3D Printers, Elif Ergul and other educators at Harmony Public Schools have been able to work with students on innovative and creative projects. This approach to problem solving has helped them to stay at the forefront of technology.
I have continued to be amazed at the creativity, curiosity, and innovation our students have achieved through creation and prototyping with the LulzBot 3D Printers in our makerspace!
- Jason Erdreich, Tech, Eng, & Design Educator
The consistency and support from LulzBot has made achieving these goals realistically manageable while opening up so many incredible opportunities and lessons that have shaped our programs.
Our students at Wyoming Indian High School have been using LulzBot Workhorse and Mini 2 printers for NASA Hunch, CAD/3d printing class and with our Robotics team (The Electric Feathers). The kids are using LulzBots to turn their ideas into reality and have even printed prototypes that presented to NASA engineers!
- Nate Reinhardt, Wyoming Indian High School Educator
Through their creative use of LulzBot 3D printers, Nate has been able to encourage students to 3D print incredible designs. Space related projects have been very popular in his classrooms.
The LulzBot 3D printers ran flawlessly throughout our hackathon. These are the best, most reliable printers we’ve ever used for the event. Our users were able to print so many different things, and their LulzBot creations were a key part of many of their designs. These are simply amazing and we will happily continue to use them!
- Shreya Reshamwala, MIT Student and MakeMIT Organizer
With LulzBot Mini 2 printers, Shreya was about to deliver a fun and successful hardware hackathon at MIT. At this event they were able to showcase their innovative spirit through large-scale projects, ranging from a driver-exhaustion monitor, to a toaster that prints your morning news. How could your classroom innovate with LulzBot 3D printers?
Because of their flexibility and adaptability, we have used LulzBot 3D Printers in a wide range of student projects including shipboard manufacturing, printing in torturous environments, and custom filaments use scenarios. I continue to be amazed at how additive manufacturing unlocks student creativity!
- Brad Baker, CAPT USN, MakerSpaceUSNA
Captain Brad Baker utilizes LulzBot 3D printers to help educate and train his Navy students on 3D printing. The versatility of LulzBot machines have been able to overcome many different challenges put forth by design constraints and unique scenarios.
My first successful experience with 3D printing in the classroom began because of LulzBot. Their machines have allowed me, as well as my students, to engage in projects that we may not have otherwise attempted without a consistent, reliable 3D printer. I love having the TAZ Pro with the M175 v2 Tool Head as we can print just about anything you can think of in an educational setting.
- Bill White, Applied Engineering and Technology Teacher
At Avonworth High School Mr. White has been able to inspire his students to solve problems creatively through 3D printing. This increased amount of classroom engagement has helped take their Applied Engineering and Technology Lessons to a whole new level!
If you have a problem, take a step back. You can probably solve it with a LulzBot.
- Tommy Styrvoky, Concordia Graduate
I basically opened up a whole new world of potential applications for the department’s LulzBot 3D printer. Having these opportunities at the undergraduate level was really beneficial in guiding where I want to go with my future career.
LulzLessons are engineering standards-rich STEAM lesson plans complete with educator overviews, student worksheets, design file, grading rubrics, and more!
It is commonly said the job you may have in ten years doesn’t exist yet today. By exposing students to LulzBot 3D printing, you are future-proofing them for the world of tomorrow.
Once students and faculty start using their LulzBots and amazing transformation occurs. Ideas begin to flourish, questions are asking, and classrooms & labs overflow with an excited energy.
It is an incredible feeling to be able to hold something that you made in your hands and share with those around you. This boosts confidence and provides a critical development experience for students.
