Microsoft Visits BPC

Last May, we were contacted by Microsoft Education:
I received your email from Brook Drum, at Printrbot. He indicated that you have been using a 3D Printer in your classroom for some time now. I work on Microsoft’s World Wide Education team. My colleagues Anthony, Russell (copied), and I, want to produce a short video story on 3D printers in education. 

Since it was so late in the school year, we opted to wait until the fall(ish).  Anyway, Microsoft did sent a filmmaker to our classroom, and you can see the result of the visit below (or on YouTube).

YouTube caption: With Microsoft and MakerBot, the middle school students in the Maker Club at Black Pine Circle School (BPC) are developing the necessary skills to make the world a better place by using their unique perspectives and passions to inspire their 3D printed creations.


  1. MakerBots are so awesome! I love how many things have become possible with 3D printing possibilities. Something cool that MakerBot is currently doing is offering a challenge with FirstBuild ( All you do is submit a printed design for the kitchen counter, and you have the chance to win an actual MakerBot printer.

  2. Great ! Very nice blog and excellent things exist in your blog content. thanks for sharing..
