Hello Graduates,

For those of you wanting to put more computer science, design and
programming into your courses or summer workshops or even a summer camp for
students...I pass this on as a possibility.  Thanks to Marlene Swartz for
this suggestion!

I hope your summer is going well!
Dr. Franklin

We had a huge success with the Mars Base Design Challenge
judges took on the difficult task of picking the top winners out of a
record breaking 226 submission. In first place, we have Noah Hornberger for
his Queen B

Congratulations to all the winners!


Cary Busby is the instructor at a 3D printing camp run by the Muse Knoxville
a children's science museum in Knoxville, TN. Using a MakerBot Replicator
2, she teaches students ages 9 to 14 about 3D design, focusing on
industries that use 3D printing, like prosthetics and automotive design.
Students leave with "a new appreciation for the possibilities of 3D
printing and additive manufacturing and how it is affecting our community,"
says Busby.


To celebrate the winners of our Mars Base Design Challenge
MakerBot's Design Studio has come out with a 3D printable model of the Mars
At over a foot tall, this space exploration vehicle is a fun and
challenging project to print and assemble with your students. Download and
print the Mars Rover today and check out NASA-JPL's website
for relevant classroom materials and lesson plans. We would love to see
your prints so make sure to post pictures on Thingiverse!

all of our conference rooms at our HQ are named after Star Wars locations!

NYC-based artist Sebastian Errazuriz created "12 Shoes for 12 Lovers" on
his MakerBot Replicator 2X Experimental 3D Printer. Each shoe's formation
was influenced by the artist's former relationships, resulting in personal,
emotional pieces. Come hear Sebastian speak about the creation process for
"12 Shoes for 12 Lovers" at the NYC MakerBot Retail Store. Space is
