Heads up, teachers! 10 MakerBots being given away!!

If you’re a teacher, a student or know either of the above, you must check this one out. MakerBot Industries is giving away 10 MakerBot kits to teachers!

Are you a teacher that could use a MakerBot? It’s almost time to go back to school and so we’re giving 10 teachers each a MakerBot Cupcake CNC Deluxe Kit with standard MK4 Extruder and a bonus Heated Build Platform kit.

…our criteria for the giveaway will be clarity, innovation, and curriculum integration…

Ok, shop & science teachers, go buy the English teachers a few drinks and ENTER!!

Double awesome is that Rick Pollack over at MakerGear.com is chipping in 10 of his PEEK SuperPack add-ons! I’ve got a lesser version of this operators pack and it’s really one of the best options you can have, if you have a MakerBot. Lots of goodies in there for when things go wrong.

Check out the full MBI blog at: http://blog.makerbot.com/2010/08/09/back-to-school-makerbot-teacher-giveaway/.

edit: Bre from MBI tweeted an important update to this: “Just to be clear, teacher means any teacher can apply. Also, the bot goes to the teacher not the school.”

    We never heard anything from MBI on the offer to contribute 10 SuperPacks to the teacher giveaway…so we put them back into inventory (but dropped the price!)

      That’s a shame, Rick. 😦 I guess I understand – you guys do sorta compete – but those packs would have made nice additions..

      I like the sale idea!! I just smoked a heater core tonight too, so I’m double-tempted. Blackened the wires and everything. After installing an aluminum idler tonight, the thermistor wires somehow came out of their home in the controller without me noticing and I told it to go to 220C then walked away for a few minutes.. Bad idea, apparently.

      Thankfully, I have a fresh 0.35mm hot end I’ve been meaning to get some time in with and that’s on there now. 🙂
