3Doodler was the first (and best) company to bring the world of 3D printing to the palm of your hand. They created the first 3D pen which allows people with any bit of creative juice, to create things in 3D. The 3Doodler pen is just as easy as writing with a regular pen, but projects come to life.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013 we started seeing 3Doodler show up in retail stores everywhere. They quickly realized that not only was 3Doodler a great creative tool but it was also great for classrooms and makerspaces for students.

3D printing is one of the most popular things in STEM education. Classrooms and makerspaces at schools across the country typically have at least one 3D printer in the room. While this is great for the students, 3Doodler offers more students the opportunity to create more things at the same time, and pretty affordably as well. With 3Doodler all of the students in class can participate at the same time.

Two years ago, 3Doodler started their foray into the world of education via 3Doodler EDU. The company found that teachers were using 3Doodler for STEM, tactile learning, prototyping and invention, computational thinking, and arts and design. 3Doodler focuses on two of their pens for educational use, the 3Doodler Start and 3Doodler create. As they explain in the video above, the 3Doodler Start is ideal for younger students it uses a non-toxic, biodegradable plastic as opposed to traditional PLA filament. That makes it ideal for younger students who may get it on their fingers or clothes, or maybe try and eat it (don’t laugh I ate Playdoh too).  The 3Doodler Create is the pen that works best for older students and gives them access to more filaments for different project designs and ideas.

3Doodler supports teachers and educators with a wide range of lesson plans, project ideas and tips to get the class fully engaged in the 3Doodler experience. Lessons bring true cross-curriculum learning to the mix by offering project ideas in: art, ELA, STEM, Math and even social studies.

3Doodler will be at ISTE 2018 in Chicago, June 24th-27th showing off how easy it is for schools to add 3D printing in their classrooms and makerspaces.
