What: Learn the basics of 3-D printing, create/adapt a lesson plan for your classroom, and receive a Makerbot Sketch Classroom kit (https://www.makerbot.com/3d-printers/sketch-classroom/)
1. Complete the online Makerbot Teacher Certification course at your own pace and on your own schedule. The $99 course fee will be paid by MiSTEM Region 9.
