"There are very few 3D printer manufacturers who aren’t involved in education to some degree. It’s a refrain we hear again and again: teaching kids about 3D printing is critical, the earlier the better, because it’s the future of every industry. While many companies have included educational outreach in their business plans, others seem to have been formed for the express purpose of putting 3D printers in classrooms. Polar 3D is one of those companies. The Cincinnati-based corporation launched their first 3D printer only a little over a year ago, and they made it clear from the very beginning that their primary goal was to get students interested in 3D printing. "So far, they’ve been aggressively pursuing that goal through partnerships with leading educational and youth-oriented organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, with whom they teamed up last year to build new 3D printing labs at several club locations. Now Polar 3D is collaborating with Partnership for Innovation in Education (PIE) to develop new 3D printing curriculum for students in Cincinnati-area schools."
