I’m getting a 3D Printer! What do I do now?

Tell a friend, tell your students, tell the world – and then sit tight. We’ll be getting in touch regarding the dates of our upcoming workshops as well as coordinating if we can run a workshop in your area.

I wasn’t selected 🙁 What now?

We still want to work with you 🙂 ! If you are able to travel to our Tech Center in Baltimore, we’ve got a 3D Printing workshop (printer included) this December! Check scheduled workshops here. If you can’t make it to Baltimore – we can try coming to you! To do a workshop in your area we need a hosting organization in which to run the workshop, a sponsoring organization to help fund it, and at least ten participants. Past hosts & funders have included State Science/STEM Action Centers, specific school districts, local foundations or organizations, and makerspaces. If you think you may know anyone who fits into the three categories listed above, please take a minute to complete this form and we’ll be in touch.

Thank you again for your participation! As you continue to make with your youth, feel free to check out the free resources on our Blueprint website, and if you want to receive periodic updates on making with youth, sign up for our Maker Educator Newsletter at Finally, we hope to be able to run this program again in coming years, so keep in touch via any of social media channels displayed on the tool bar on the right side of this page.
