NVBots Launches Fundable Rewards Campaign To Bring 3D Printers to Schools
NVBots has launched a Fundable Rewards campaign in an effort to get 3D printers into schools. Through the program, contributors can donate as little as $5 to help bring an NVBot 3D printer to a school in need. Users who donate $2,499 will be able to provide one year of 3D printing to the school of their choice with a prorated, money-back guarantee.
The company has partnered with Citizen Schools to identify schools and communities that need the donations the most and to choose where donations are applied for individuals who do not specify a recipient school.
NVBot's printers are "designed to fuel innovation in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) education and in business," according to a company news release. Features include:
- The ability to operate printers from any device;
- A cloud interface designed to simplify the printing process with the ability to submit and tailor a job, then monitor it through video feedback;
- Printing Curricula;
- Full support, "including guidance on best practices and help with any issues that may arise," according to a news release; and
- Flexible leasing structures.
"At Citizen Schools, some of our students have already been able to experience the NVPrinter, which has inspired them in ways never thought possible," said Steven Rothstein, CEO of Citizen Schools, in a prepared statement. "The fact that NVBots is working to provide us with additional 3D Printers is a testament to how passionate they are about helping our students thrive in STEM education."
