Announcing the Winner of the 2017 Ultimaker Education Challenge

Ultimaker has just revealed the winners of their global Ultimaker education challenge, and we are proud to announce that the International School of Moshi, Arusha Campus is the winner of the East African region! The school has been awarded an Ultimaker 2+ to carry out a student project, led by Design & Technology teacher Paula Elsley, that is intended to develop skills in technology, engineering, science and math.

Students will use 3D design and printing to develop a better solution to farming methods in Tanzania. Their objective will be to design and create a seed planter that reduces the burden on farmers and will instead be attached to the back of a cow. The planter will disperse seeds along a field as the cow moves. We are happy to have been able to help ISM implement this innovative project and wish Paula and her students the best of luck in carrying it out. We are excited to see the results of this project and look forward to more projects that will use 3D printing in innovative ways to foster development in East Africa. We would also like to thank all the schools in East Africa that participated in this competition.

Contact us if you have any inquiries into how you can use 3D printing to develop your business or turn your ideas into reality and we will be happy to assist you!
