Mcor IRIS 3D printer
Getting 3D printing onto the school curriculum is high on the agenda as the industry continues to grow and awareness of the technology in education proves increasingly significant.
Mcor Technologies is leading the way in introducing 3D printing to schools and has just announced that US schools purchasing Mcor IRIS 3D printer education package before December 15th 2014 will receive three years of free unlimited consumables for its paper based 3D printer.
This exclusive deal makes what is already the lowest cost 3D printer virtually free to schools when compared with the cost per model.
Mcor 3D printers offer the lowest operating cost of any 3D printer and are safe and easy to use and offer full, true colour 3D printing. As the manufacturer of the world’s most affordable, full colour and eco-friendly printers, they are the only company to use standard A4 letter paper as material for 3D printing.
“To be effective in education, 3D printing must be accessible to all students,” said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies. “Yet, the high cost of 3D printer consumables can severely limit students’ access to 3D printing technology and be prohibitively expensive for schools. This offer enables students much wider access to our breakthrough full colour, professional, paper-based 3D printers.”
A recent survey suggested that over half of UK school children want to take up careers in the fields of technology and engineering. Perhaps soon we will see opportunities like this for children in the UK as education leaders are made more aware of the benefits of teaching young people this technology in preparation for the jobs of the future.
