With a focus is on the education market, Polar 3D hopes to bring 3D printing technology learning opportunities to all students. As part of its community outreach, Polar3D started working with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati through the donation of printers and collaboration with after school programming directors. Since that initial effort, Polar3D has coordinated its efforts with the national umbrella organization, Boys and Girls Club of America, and has launched a program to place its printers in Boys and Girls Clubs across the country. The effort is to bring hands-on STEM learning opportunities to kids and teens who are underserved in those areas of learning.
