"The Dremel 3D Idea Builder is truly a plug n' play tool that has made it easier to implement. I spend less time training teachers on how to use and more time on how to integrate. Integrating the Dremel 3D Idea Builder into our K-12 curriculum has increased student engagement, fostered student creativity, and helped student understanding of core subject concepts that are sometimes lost in translation during lecture." - Mark Simmons, Director of Technology, Sabine Pass ISD
"The Dremel 3D Idea Builder is unstoppable! It's built to last in an educational setting. It is safe and user friendly! My students are constantly checking out what is printing and planning on what they will print next! Students design with intention - as they now can bring their 2-D conceptual design into the 3-D world! They have the ability to design a 3-D model using a variety of software products that the Idea Builder is ready to print! Holding their design in hand, is magic!" - Susan, Project Lead The Way Instructor, Holmes Junior High School
"Using 3D technology takes what we learn in class to a whole new level. The children are more inspired to learn about the various parts of an animal cell and its functions when they simultaneously watch the construction and formation of a 3D animal cell. Incorporating this type of technology into their learning allows them to make connections from what they are learning in class to the greater world around them." - Chaidan Leshinski, 5th Grade Math, Joseph Sears School
