One of Printrbot Learn’s main missions is to support makers, learners and teachers in all of the different spaces they work in. Making can be tough work. When you are starting out it can even be a little intimidating. We want to make things a little easier and help people get over the first challenges they face by creating a resource together that anyone can use in their classrooms.

We are looking for your best lesson plan that involves a 3D printer.

It doesn’t matter whether you teach in kindergarten or work with high school seniors. It doesn’t matter if you teach art, physics, history or work in an after school program or a makerspace with kids. We want to hear from you. Submit your best lesson plan and earn the chance to win some Printrbot swag. Filament for your printer, Printrbot stickers and t – shirts are all up for grabs.

Your lesson plan needs to include:

– An overview of the project in 100 words or less
– The grade levels / ages it would be appropriate for
– Ideas for assessment
– A list of outcomes or objectives covered in the lesson
– Any helpful hints or tips or suggestions for completing the project

As well, please send along any photos of completed projects and sample stl files that makers trying to complete the project on their own can use as samples.

Winning lesson plans will be featured on the Printrbot Learn website and will be included in a growing booklet of lessons that will be free for anyone to download. All lesson plans will be released to the public under a Creative Commons license. (We don’t want to own your stuff, we just want to share it with the world!)

Submit your lessons to by July 8th for the chance to win some great stuff.

Let’s see what we can build together!
