Follett has recently become a premier distributor for Dremel 3D printers for the K-12 school market. The Dremel 3D Idea Builder, which made its debut in the education market in 2016, is made specifically for education with easy-to-use software, and comes with 10 curriculum-based lesson plans. It features 3D model kits designed specifically for exploring STEM education and includes complete access to a Professional Development Learning Network (PDLN) badge certification training course.
Follett recently responded to the growing trend of librarians and schools embracing makerspaces by offering age-level specific Makerspace Bundles, which encourage students’ inquiry and exploration through hands-on production. The bundles, designed to save time and take the guesswork out of starting a makerspace, allow librarians to get started in the makerspace concept without doing all of the curation work themselves.
Easy to set up and safe to use, the Idea Builder enables students to interact with their 3D models in the physical space – ultimately enhancing retention of abstract concepts. For educators, the printer’s comprehensive teaching and learning kits easily integrate with existing STEM curriculum and includes access to Dremel’s extensive 1:1 customer support and training. The Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 printer also features WiFi connectivity, active filament monitoring, a clog-resistant extruder and assisted leveling.
