How to Get the Word Out About Your 3D Printers

Display prominently!

  • Set up on mobile carts, and use and store near the front door or other prominent spot if you can
  • Showcase student examples of projects on display tables in the library as well as on your library blog and/or website.

Market to teachers!

  • Remind teachers of the availability to classes through your newsletter, emails, one-on-one conversations
  • Share class project ideas at department meetings; 3D design projects support skills in math, art, computer programming, and more

Organize events!

  • Hold regular Library Maker Fairs and include easy 3D design activities
  • Offer school-wide challenges. For example, last December students were challenged to create holiday cookie cutters.
