printing is being featured as part of a Japanese documentary about technology in American schools. A Japanese film crew visited Buford Middle School in Charlottesville, Virginia, for a first hand look at how students are using printers.
At the Digital Harbor Tech Center in South Baltimore, kids K-12 have access to computers, a garden and a maker lab outfitted with 3D printers. Students can apply their tech skills in the community to earn tuition money or to fund a start-ups. "It's really about connecting local youth with technological opportunities and creating new ones," says Digital Harbor Foundation co-executive director, Andrew Coy.
