3D Printing Kids Challenge: Learn, Dream, Create!

August 25th, 2014


3D Printing Kids Challenge: Learn, Dream, Create!

There is a lot of speculation over the negative impact that technology is making on the young generation. However, no research holds up or is able to clearly evidence the harmful effect of technology, as such, since it all comes down to the practicalities of using it. What matters is what sort of technology, how and for what purpose we use, how much screen time we get, the quality of it and the benefits that we experience. Eventually, it all comes down to what we make of it.

We believe that 3D printing technology is truly revolutionary and will have a transformative impact on many different industries. It does require certain knowledge and skill to really capitalize on it, so the earlier you start playing with it, the more chances you have to become the virtuoso of 3D modelling in the future. And trust us when we say – you will be glad you invested time and effort into this! Let’s show the world the immense power of technology, when it is in the hands of brilliant young people.

3D Printing Kids Challenge is perfect for you if your brain is bubbling with ideas, you have a flair for technology and have the guts to go head to head with other young geniuses like yourself.

We will welcome a wide range of good quality 3D printable models from juniors aged 14 & under. You are free to create 3D printable models of any object that you believe could improve the school life, home or leisure time. If you have developed an inspiring toy concept or come up with a brilliant invention for everyday problems, we want to see it.

Hey, could you guys do another one for just TEENS???? 13-19 (or 20 I suppose.....) Then one for just professionals maybe? I know someone (and I'm sure there's many more out there) that are teens, but are too old to participate in this challenge, and are too inexperienced to participate in the other challenges.... -For me personally, I think this challenge is great, and I look forward to seeing what I can print ;)- Thanks, Joey
