“Thank you to the Global Edtech Startup judges for selecting us and congratulations to all the finalists. We will continue to work hard and bring the excitement and fun of 3D printing to more students – we believe that the skills they learn today will provide them with an advantage in the future as the 3D consumer revolution really takes hold.”
