Our Maker Garage at NCCE 2014 was a tremendous hit. Attendees stopped by the garage in droves to see the 3D printers in action. Every teacher that views a 3D printer instantly recognizes the possibilities in the classroom, but one barrier to entry so far has been the price tag of these amazing devices. M3D is trying to tackle the price issue with the Micro 3D printer. Just launched on Kickstarter, the project has raised almost $2,ooo,ooo out of the original $50,000 goal. M3D is currently offering the Micro 3D printer for $299 on Kickstarter. At this price M3D is truly making a product that schools can adopt on a large scale. Take a look at the promotional video:
