The Ultimaker Original is a DIY 3D printer kit, allowing you to build your own reliable and accurate 3D printer at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a fully assembled printer. This provides amazing opportunities for students to get involved in assembling the printer and learning valuable skills in the process such as teamwork, communication and collaboration in addition to gaining valuable technical skills and insight into how 3D printers are engineered. This option provides a perfect STEM or Design Technology activity, suitable for secondary students although this approach has had proven results with students aged 8+.
See how schools have benefited from this approach in our blog:
Cowley International College
“What’s even more impressive is that Ultimakers are being used across the curriculum, with the school investing a lot of resources into their use. Now opportunities exist for their use within computer science, design technology, art, science, engineering and mathematics. A very forward thinking school in our eyes.
Our younger students are interested in it from the age of 11 right through to 18. It interests students with mathematical skills, scientific skills, but also creative skills, of all ages and of all genders.”
Rob Jones, Teacher
