  • developing 3D modelling course for Teachers;
  • developing of online environment for teachers interested in applying 3DP solutions;
  • initiating the network of 3DP teacher experts.

  • teachers from secondary schools interested in innovations and development of their digital skills in teaching;
  • students interested in new technologies and pursuing career in rapidly developing technology market;
  • school managers/directors, officials responsible for education.
