One of 400 schools from around the world, New Hampton has been awarded the Polar3D Classroom Package as part of the GE Additive Education Program. The Polar3D Classroom Package includes two different 3D printers plus materials, and a Tinkering with Turbines kit. As part of the program, New Hampton School will have access to GE’s STEAM educational modules, and live training webinars for faculty throughout the year.
GE’s tradition of supporting educational institutions fits with New Hampton School’s mission to cultivate global citizens, innovate with technology, and provide authentic learning experiences to our students. Our faculty and students are already familiar with coding and 3D printing thanks to our innovation lab and maker space, but GE’s generosity, expertise, and partnership will further support our effort to advance Science, Technology, Math, Arts and Engineering (STEAM) opportunities at the school.
Throughout the year, students will have access to GE’s Polar Cloud where they will track progress, design and print activity. The program motivates students with recognition given to schools with high performance and ongoing engagement. The goal is to drive student learning in a collaborative space.
We look forward to sharing our progress throughout the year.
