3D Printing, Part 5: DonorsChoose.org
Its called DonorsChoose.org. This non-profit website is like a kick starter project but it focuses on getting money for teachers. What teachers can do is go this website and make a request to get funding from donors for some resources they need in the classroom. If you take a look around the website you will see teachers ask for all sorts of stuff from textbooks to field trip funding. A while back DonorsChoose.org ran a big campaign to donate 3D printers to teachers. I know a couple of teachers who scored a 3D printer at this time. Even though this campaign is over, you can still go to the site and post your project. The site has raised millions of dollars for teachers, and is backed by big players like Oprah. Pretty awesome.
