Alliance Enables Scouts to Turn their Ideas into Realities at Upcoming STEM Camp and Beyond
BOSTON, MA - (March 25, 2015) – NVBOTS, creator of the world’s first fully-automated 3D printer, today announced it has entered into a partnership with the Boy Scouts of America, Boston Minuteman Council, to provide a motivating 3D printing experience to scouts who aspire to become innovators in science and engineering.
“At NVBOTS, we are committed to training the next generation of scientists and engineers on design for 3D printing, and we are thrilled to be partnering with the Boy Scouts of America, an amazing organization that equips scouts with the skills necessary to pursue their dreams,” said NVBOTS CEO AJ Perez. “By giving access to the NVBOTS 3D printing experience, we look forward to playing a role in inspiring each scout to bring their ideas to life, in ways never before thought possible.”
One of the first initiatives coming out of the partnership will involve the company’s participation in the upcoming Camp Sayre STEM Camp, taking place April 20-24, 2015. NVBOTS will be donating its NVPro 3D printing service and will have NVBOTS 3D printing experts on site to guide scouts through the 3D printing process. In addition, they will demonstrate the important role 3D printing plays in the science, engineering, mathematics and technology fields.
“We pride ourselves on providing an environment for scouts that allows them to learn, grow and be inspired,” said Kim Kokkotos, head of development for Boy Scouts of America, Boston Minuteman Council. “The team at NVBOTS is passionate about giving these young minds the experiential learning they need to excel in the world and we are excited to collaborate with them on creating valuable experiences for our scouts in the months to come.”
The NVPro printer will also be available in the Boston Minuteman Council main lobby on a daily basis, making it possible for any scout to print their own creations.
