UK-based 3D printing curriculum developer PrintLab has launched two new unlimited-use licences for schools, non-profits, consultants and training programs. Each available on an annual basis, the Site License and Instructor License extend the PrintLab Classroom offering, facilitating access to the company’s archive of dedicated lesson plans.

With more freedom of how PrintLab Classroom is used throughout educational programs, the company is doing its part to fulfill the needs of the current STEM skills gap. 3D Printing Industry speaks to Jason Yeung, Co-Founder at PrintLab, to learn more.

As a distributor of Shining 3D printers, 3D scanners, and Innofil3D filament, the company also provides educational bundles of all the kit needed to start these projects.

“Our ultimate goal is to close the 3D printing skills gap,” explains Yeung, “to prepare students for careers where they can solve real-world problems and design a better future.”

WAY - TO - ACCOMPLISH - THIS - YEUNG

“THE WAY TO ACCOMPLISH THIS,” YEUNG ADDS, “ISN’T TO ISOLATE 3D PRINTING INTO A SINGLE SUBJECT AREA, BUT TO BRIDGE IT ACROSS THE SCHOOL-WIDE CURRICULUM.”

At present, there are 35 cross-curricular lesson plans available through the site, including a range for humanities. Two new plans are added each month, and there is an online certified training course for educators, and a free digital 3D Printing Guide for Teachers.

Prior to the launch of these new licenses, PrintLab offered a 1 Year Teacher License with unlimited access to its resources for a single classroom. With the new plans added, this license...
