MakerBot is hosting Makeathons for the summer and we would love to see you there! We’re inviting all educators, designers, makers, and anyone experienced in 3D printing to collaborate with us. At each Makeathon, we’ll tackle challenges over the course of two days by iterating on ideas, developing STEAM content, and having fun along the way. Join us for the greater good of elevating 3D printing in the classroom: Sign up for the 2016 Chicago Makerbot Makeathon at CIADC!
