Second Time Around: MyStemKits returns to the Georgia Educational Technology Conference.
On November 2nd through the 4th, 2016, MyStemKits made its debut at the GaETC introducing itself as a company to watch in the field of 3D printing education. The experience was a positive for MySTEMKits, it provided great exposure to the technology community.
This year, on November 8th through the 10th, MyStemKits returned to the GaETC as a seasoned vet. The two-day event hosted over 200 commercial exhibits of technological advancements created to improve education. Hundreds of educators, administrators, and education enthusiasts, navigated through the Georgia International Convention Center in search of solutions to their educational needs. Backed by a very colorful and creative backdrop and a display which featured a wide variety of their 3D printed educational kits, MyStemKits’ appeal was unavoidable.
MyStemKits’ display highlighted subjects from DNA to water filtration, Moon stages to ocean landforms. Visitors of the booth were given the chance to register for a free 6month trial subscription to MyStemKits.com and a chance to win a 3D printed skull by using a 3D printed catapult to launch a projectile into a fish bowl. Although there was no winner the experience of interacting with a kit hands on gave many a better understanding of the MyStemKits process. The interaction with the catapult kit left many intrigued by the teaching concepts behind each kit motivating them to learn as much as they could about the benefits of using MyStemKits in their classrooms. Others were captivated by the attention to detail each 3D printed part possessed. Although they were attracted by different aspects of the display, the one common factor that they all agreed on was the need for MyStemKits in the education world.
Over the two-day period, MyStemKits’ exhibit was visited by over 150 guests ranging from teachers, principals, board members, and program organizers. The variation of the visitors afforded MyStemKits the opportunity to broaden the awareness of the company’s vision and concept as well as build possibilities for future partnerships. MyStemKits’ 2yr participation in the Georgia Educational Technology Conference is evidence that their efforts towards STEM education are more than just words, they are fortified with actions.
