3D Printing Helps Educators Bridge the Skills Gap

As additive manufacturing quickly becomes more integrated into the manufacturing workplace, organizations face increasing challenges in bridging the skills gap. They are seeking qualified graduates with the skills and experience to work with 3D printers.

Offering the metal and composite 3D printing technologies from Markforged in schools provides a hands-on learning opportunity with the tools professionals use every day. 3D printing labs, combined with FIRST Robotics and SAE sponsorships, help students build their problem-solving and collaboration skills for a leg up in their future careers.

Markforged for Educators, Research and Labs

Markforged offers special pricing for use in classrooms, research labs, fab labs and non-profits, opening the door for new discoveries at a lower cost. You will also have full access to the Markforged Additive Manufacturing University for a wide array of free online resources including design guides, videos and more.

“What you can get away with using additive manufacturing - you can't with subtractive manufacturing. The ease of additive manufacturing accelerates the student’s ability to go from concept to parts. However, our job is to teach students both additive and subtractive manufacturing, along with the strengths, weaknesses, and interchange between them.”

— Brad Rowland, ENDEAVOR Manager of Operations, Oklahoma State University
