Two Atlanta-Based EdTech Companies MyStemKits & PolyPort Announce Partnership Allowing Students & Educators to Create Their Own 3D Print Designs
MyStemKits and PolyPort (d3crypt3d) are announcing a new partnership that will couple PolyPort’s design and 3D asset protection platform with MyStemKits’ content library for educators who want to focus on design curriculum. This will allow schools that have a 3D printer but no content the ability to tailor their curriculum using MyStemKits’ 3D manipulatives. Anyone who uses the PolyPort platform will have access to the MyStemKits library. Educators can also customize these kits inside of their 3D software platform of choice.
“This partnership unlocks the world’s largest digital asset library of STEM focused design files to educators in a secure manner,” says Laron Walker, CEO of MyStemKits. This partnership provides educators and students with the quickest, hands-on approach to learning, while ensuring a seamless and secure ecosystem. MyStemKits initial offering focused solely on delivering quality designs and curriculum through a first-class platform in support of math and science teachers. “In this phase, we are looking to offer the same support to Career and Technical Education, Engineering and other teachers focused on design center programs”.
“What better way to further our mission of safeguarding makers’ intellectual property than by investing in people who will create our future,” Says CEO Chloe Kettell. “We couldn’t have asked for a better partner to work with in this endeavor.”
MyStemKits is expanding beyond ready-to-print and, as a result of this partnership, will now allow students and educators to create their own 3D print designs. Design flexibility combined with a requirement to protect the digital assets sparked the two Atlanta-based companies to establish their strategic partnership.
