Welcome to the MPACT Teacher Community Website

MPACT curriculum units are hands-on, minds-on spatial reasoning projects that address state and national math and computer science standards. MPACT students are supported by mentors–professionals who use 3D printing in their work, play, or study.

Calling all Teachers

MPACT is recruiting teacher participants for our impact study, starting in November.

If you are an interested teacher of grades 4-7, please contact us right away. If you teach in a rural area, that’s a plus. You get online PD, stipends, free curriculum, a 3D printer, online mentors, and a classroom library. We ask you to collect  data in the form of teacher logs and teacher and student surveys.
