About the project
The project delivers a 3D printing training programme to primary school teachers, and facilitates teacher and pupil participation in a 3D printing design competition.
Purpose of the project
The project provides teachers and pupils with digital and green skills, and aims to feed the pipeline of future talent for advanced manufacturing industries.
The project promotes positive perceptions of STEM at a young age, and aims to break down negative stereotypes about manufacturing by promoting inclusivity and sustainability.
Main results & insights
By the end of 2023, the project will have trained over 160 teachers, and facilitated the involvement of over 3,000 pupils, across five countries.
