Join the Great 3D-Printing Challenge!

Host your own 3D printing competition
As an incredibly proud sponsor of the ocMaker Challenge, a local 3D-printing “maker” challenge for schools in Orange County, CA, we here at Airwolf 3D have had the incredible experience of seeing, first hand, how beneficial a maker challenge is for creating a highly engaging STEM curriculum in local schools.

A new twist on the classic science fair, a maker challenge is an integrated STEM project that utilizes art, design, and technology, such as 3D printing. Under the guidance of teachers trained in 3D printing, student participants design and create incredible inventions that offer solutions to problems or needs in their community. Best of all, you get to witness the students’ passion, enthusiasm, and mastery of complex subject matter.

Airwolf 3D is on a mission to spread maker culture and a passion for STEM across America (and eventually the world!). That’s why we developed the Great 3D-Printing Challenge.

No need to worry about how to host a successful maker challenge, we’ll bring the Great 3D-Printing Challenge to you! Invest in 15 Airwolf 3D printers, and we’ll provide everything you need to host an installment of the Great 3D-Printing Challenge in your area.
