80/20 - thank you UM! and shameless bragging

Posted · 80/20 - thank you UM! and shameless bragging

I wanted to share with the forum folks a great thing UM is doing at the San Francisco Maker Faire this year. They are inspiring school kids to rise to a challenge, the Ultimaker Bay Area Maker Faire Gumball Machine Challenge! I think that is the official name. ANYWAY kids from 4 selected schools in the US will design 3D printed items to be put inside 2-inch(48mm) gum ball machine capsules. The students' designs will be loaded into one of the 4 gumball machines at the San Francisco Bay Area Maker Faire May 21-22. Attendees will be able to buy these for 50 cents each! The schools will get all the money collected from their machine, AND who ever sells the most will win a new Ultimaker 3D printer!

This also feels a shameless brag (20% maybe) since my school was honored to be selected. AND we are certainly going to use this fact to brag and issue press stories as much as we can. :-) We are a small school district with a fairly high poverty rate who needs all the good press we can get. Read more about our excitement here: www.comstockps.org/gumball

Thank you UM for sponsoring this awesome fun challenge for our kids!
