What is The CREATE Education Project?

The CREATE Education Project was set up in 2014 with one aim - to support educators in bringing 3D printing and additive manufacturing technologies to young people, giving them industry skills to succeed in a rapidly expanding high-quality careers market. Additive manufacturing technologies encompass: 3D printers, 3D design, 3D scanning, 3D forming.

We work exclusively within the education sector, supporting schools, colleges and Universities and aim to bridge the gap between industry and education, breaking down barriers to allow young people and educational organisations to gain 3D printing and additive manufacturing skills from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 5. We further support Universities with their undergraduate and postgraduate courses as well as their ongoing research and development.

How we do this?

Community - We work in partnership with industry and education to ensure the advice and technology we offer are cutting edge.

Reliability - All products have been tested to ensure they are easy to use, simple to maintain, and cost-effective. We are the preferred UK education resellers for Mayku, Meltio, and Ultimaker.

Education - We believe in the power of education to transform, and supply our customers with the best use and best practice technology.

Accessibility - Our mission is to allow everyone a chance to develop the necessary career skills to seed innovation.

Teachability - The tackle the challenge of introducing any new technology into the classroom embed it effectively.

Economy - We do not believe that money should stand in the way of accessibility. We also offer a low cost loan scheme so that educators can try our technology before they buy.

Used CREATE Education Project monthly for 3-4 years

Dec 2021

This programme has had a substantial commitment by industry to enable schools across Lancashire to include 3D additive manufacturing in the curriculum with a hands on approach and 3D printer to complement the learning of CAD/CAM. The Create team are producing excellent resources with first class support to assist teachers in the delivery of these future digital skills.

Neil Hodgson found CREATE Education Project:
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Create education have helped me to deliver the Engineering Systems syllabus at KS4 since I started the course 3 years ago. The 3D printer and the tools available to support the delivery of the learning of CAD CAM are so relevant to the modern engineering factory model.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    The knowledge unlocked by the additive manufacturing process enables me to deliver the curriculum in full and this additional programme gives the capacity to include KS3 which both prepares and educates the pupils as part of my 5 year plan for technology.

Lubo

Digital Learning Lead

Used CREATE Education Project for 4-6 months

Jun 2021

Extremely engaging, well pitched workshops for the children to explore and use the skills that were modelled.

Lubo found CREATE Education Project:
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Our children were able to explore and really understand what 3D modelling is and its impact on our world today and the future. The classes were able to put into context what a 3D plane is and how to manipulate it for their modelling. The sessions were able to address Information Technology by using the mouse correctly to navigate the software.
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    At the start of the session none of the teachers were aware of the software or how applicable it can be to the national curriculum, especially with design and technology. By the end of the session we were all confident and are now able to teach it efficiently to our classes.
  • Slightly improves school processes
    With access to 3D printers, we are now thinking creatively on our resources. Story time in reception has been enhanced with the printing of the Gruffalo, our Year 5 space projects have involved the classes constructing a 3D model of a space rocket and designing their own. These would not be possible without the 3D printing and the software that we explored during a Create Education Workshop.
