GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich's MakerBot Retail Store has partnered with Level Up Village to help students in Uganda.
MakerBot is donating a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer to the students of Gayaza High School in Uganda. Elementary school students in Greenwich and Uganda are learning about 3D printing, courtesy of MakerBot and the nonprofit Level Up Village.
The series of lessons will teach students how to make battery-powered reading lights with 3D printed cases, the first of many projects MakerBot hopes will provide electricity solutions for the developing nation.
"To make this goal more personal for students, the girls at Gayaza High School have been sending videos and photos documenting the lack of electrical infrastructure in Uganda," representatives said in a release. "Students in Uganda and the U.S. will use this data to inform their designs."
