Rotary Charities Grantee Brings 3D Printers to Local Students

3d-791205_960_720Grand Traverse area students are learning to “think outside the box” with a new 3D printer program developed in a collaboration between manufacturer RJG, Inc., local nonprofit, Newton’s Road, and Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District (TBAISD). After receiving a Rotary Charities Planning Grant in 2015, TBAISD worked with NorthSky Nonprofit Network consultant Amy Martin to develop a fundraising strategy and better define organizational structure, eventually becoming a program of Northwest Michigan Works.

Since the Newton’s Road 3D program began, TBAISD educators have seen a positive response from students, allowing them to have fun and use their creativity while getting hands-on experience in a growing technology field.

Rotary Charities is proud to support TBAISD in their collaborative effort to share this amazing technology with students in our region, helping to create the next generation of innovators!
