MAKERBOT REPLICATOR 3D PRINTING

3D Printers for Education

From elementary to university classrooms, 3D printers for schools are helping students find new ways engage with and learn material. Whether it’s home economics or physics, teachers are discovering that 3D printers provide new and novel learning opportunities that increase confidence and engage students’ imaginations. In terms of critical thinking, 3D printers for schools are changing the paradigm; empowering students to create physical objects that solve problems using reasoning and logic. It sets the tone for experimentation, success, failure, and learning that transcends paper, video, or white boards through observation and problem solving within the physical world rather than on paper.

PHANTOM 3 DRONES

Enjoy the thrill of flight as you speed through the air. Powerful, responsive motors send your Phantom soaring exactly on the path you want. Stop in place, speed up, or fly higher in an instant

SNAP CIRCUITS

Welcome to Snap Circuits

SNAP CIRCUITS makes learning electronics easy and fun! Just follow the colorful pictures in our manual and build exciting projects, such as FM radios, digital voice recorders, AM radios, burglar alarms, doorbells, and much more! You can even play electronic games with your friends. All parts are mounted on plastic modules and snap together with ease. Enjoy hours of educational fun while learning about electronics.

SPHERO ROBOTICS

The new Sphero SPRK Edition makes it even easier for teachers, parents, and kids to learn math, robotics, and programming.

If you have not seen Sphero, it’s a small hand-sized ball you can program easily to change colors, run a circuit, keep beat with a song, and many other fun ideas.

The Sphero robot is fun for kids and fits well into school curriculums. For example, at least one science teacher uses Spheros to replicate the orbits of planets around the sun, with each Sphero planet programmed to make a circuit identical to a real planet. Kids see an abstract idea — planets orbit around the sun in different paths at different rates — operate on the floor in front of them.

OZOBOT

Whether you are a seasoned engineer or a child, Ozobot Bit can be as fun or challenging as you make it. Simple and intuitive to use on one side, highly programmable and versatile on the other - there is something for every type of thinker, with our tiny tinker robot.
