2,000+ Schools 1,200,000+ Students



Polar3D is proud to bring you the Additive Education Program (“AEP”) for primary and secondary schools.  GE is the founding sponsor of the AEP committing $10 million over five years to build an ecosystem for 3D printing in education giving students of all grades exposure to additive manufacturing. In just three years, the AEP has delivered over 2,500 polymer 3D printers to more than 2,000 schools in 40 countries providing access to technology and curriculum to some 1,200,000 students via the Polar Cloud.  But the AEP has turned down qualified applications from thousands of schools missing out on the opportunity to improve outcomes for an additional 2.5+ million students.  We must expand student access. Join the AEP and help develop student interest in STEM and create a pipeline of talent for the digital workforce of tomorrow. 

Sponsorship Tiers

For as little as $2,000, the AEP can qualify and equip your local school wherever  in the world with an end-to-end 3D printing solution that includes a 3D printer, cloud setup, training, design tool and curriculum integration plus the AEP will monitor performance during the school year and provide continual feedback both directly and via the AEP class of schools and broader platform community. The AEP mission is to deliver:

  • Access
  • Engagement
  • Better Student Outcomes

The AEP application process opens each year in January or early February with awards announced in May and shipments in August. We do not wish to turn down thousands of qualified schools and miss-out on the opportunity to positively impact these students. Please help us expand student access by becoming an AEP sponsor today!
