3D Printers for Schools

Opportunity for schools to purchase 3D printers to support their extra-curricular STEM Club through a Crowd Funded model and for sponsors to support 3D printing activities in schools over 5 years.

You Invent helps schools acquire innovative technologies at no overall cost, giving students the opportunity to prepare for fulfilling careers in creative industries http://youinvent.co

They have a package which effectively supports the school to purchase a 3D printer with suitable training, activities, equipment and resources through a crowd funding route.  This means the school has the opportunity to recuperate all associated costs.

The process starts by joining You Invent as a member (£200 cost outlay which can be recuperated through the crowdfunding total) the club or school then has access to all the tools needed to set up and get started.

They have also just set up a 5 year package for schools to engage with You Invent for £5k by finding sponsors to support their local school.
