It's true! We are one of the lucky FIRST Robotics teams to be awarded an amazing EKOCYCLE Cube 3D Printer. EKOCYCLE is a new company that is a partnership between will.i.am and Coca Cola. The idea behind the company is to make more with what we have. One of their slogans is "Waste Less, Love More! Through FIRST Robotics, we applied for a grant for one of these amazing printers and we recently learned we were awarded one.
Yes, we can use it to create parts for our robot, but that's only a small part of what we want to do with our new printer. We want to share this awe-inspiring new technology with our community. We plan on scheduling demonstrations here in Wake County and throughout the Triangle Area at local schools, and clubs. We want to get everyone excited about STEM Education and recycling. This year our team has started an ECOBotic Program to encourage green initiatives everywhere. The EKOCYCLE Cube 3D Printer fits in perfectly into our philosophy of being green and leaving as little a carbon footprint as possible.
Stay tuned. We will definitely share this exciting technology as soon as our new printer arrives.
