Are you a teacher or administrator looking to bring 3D printing to your school? If so, STEAMporio's Open-Source Curriculum Challenge offers a chance to win a classroom 3D printing package while working to make the technology accessible to ALL students!
Accepting submissions nationwide until June 1, 2018, the Open-Source Curriculum Challenge is FREE to enter and the prizes include:
1st Place - One Classroom 3D Printing Setup which includes a MP Maker Select V2 and 5 Spools of Zyltech PLA.
2nd Place - 5 Spools of Zyltech PLA filament.
3rd Place - Have your Curriculum’s 3D printed components printed by us and sent to you!
The criteria and requirements of the challenge are as follows:
1. Teachers and administrators must develop and submit a lesson plan/module that demonstrates how they would use a 3D printer in the classroom.
2. All submissions will be considered open source and hosted on our website for others to access in google drive format.
**STEAMporio reserves the right to reject submissions considered inappropriate**
3. Submissions will be judged based off the practicality and adaptability of the lesson plan/module.
Entries that are straightforward, practical for the average classroom and easily adaptable into a school's broader curriculum will be rated higher. Lesson plans and modules that are difficult to understand and/or hard to incorporate will be rated lower.
An example of an ideal submission - which cannot be used for this challenge - would be a simple-to-understand lesson plan that instructs students on how to design, print and merchandise keychains.
The goal of STEAMporio's Open-Source Curriculum Challenge is to create a platform where teachers across America can easily access a lesson plan and incorporate it in both their classroom and/or after-school program - for FREE - while utilizing 3D printing technology.
