STEM Teacher Workshop and Grant Available Now!

Grand Canyon University's Strategic Educational Alliances Department invites K-12 school teams to participate in a free 3D printer workshop earning a $500 grant for your school.

Does your school have a 3D printer that isn't being utilized to teach students STEM? Apply for the opportunity to attend a workshop at GCU that will show you how to utilize your 3D printer in your classes to maximize science, technology, engineering and math principles. Maximum of two participants per school. Maximum one kit and grant per school.

What is the Workshop?
Learn about how a 3D printer works from start to finish and how it is used in a variety of fields. Participate in hands-on activities to learn various projects that you can use in your classes and/or after-school, STEM-related programs. You will leave with a kit of resources that includes a guide to 3D printing, materials to replicate the activities done in your workshop for your classroom and a $500 grant. This grant is intended for you to apply and implement what was learned at the workshop. Grant checks will be distributed to you at the Nov. 1 workshop and made out to your school or district.

Selected teams are required to participate in the all-day workshop on Nov. 1, 2016, and the GCU STEMFest on March 4, 2017. All participating schools are required to attend and demonstrate their project. The GCU STEMFest is a collaborative community event for organizations to share resources and for schools to showcase STEM accomplishments. Here, you and a minimum of three students will demonstrate their 3D projects and STEM skills, as a result of the 3D printer workshop and $500 Grant.

The deadline to apply is Sept. 15, 2016.  Winners will be notified by Sept. 30, 2016.
