KYOCERA GIVES LOCAL SCHOOLS 3D PRINTING BOOST
11 November 2015
SCHOOLS in Bristol will have access to a 3D printer following the generosity of local office supplies provider Greensource Solutions.
Greensource Solutions, based in the St Philips area of the city, provides a mixture of office supplies and a recycling cartridge service to organisations across the UK.
It will be talking to local schools and colleges about how they can use its state-of-the-art Cube Pro trio 3D printer. This will prove particularly valuable within STEM and design and technology subjects in order to stimulate learning and creativity.
Greensource Solutions decided to share its good fortune with the local community after winning the device in a competition run by distributor Ingram Micro and long-standing leader in document management KYOCERA Document Solutions. Originally born out of a charity, the company has raised millions of pounds for worthy causes including Children’s Hospice South West and Bristol Zoo Gardens since 1994.
Kris Bale, Account Manager at Greensource Solutions said, “We’re thrilled to have won this device and are already impressed with the things it can do. As an organisation, we’ve got a long history of giving back to the local area, so we think it’s fitting to donate use of our 3D device to schools that may otherwise be unable to invest in this technology. Schools will be able to ‘borrow’ the device for a few weeks each. We can’t wait to see what kind of products and prototypes the students can make.”
Aaron Anderson, Marketing Development Manager at KYOCERA said, “We’re delighted to give this device to Greensource Solutions after they beat around 200 other entrants. We know that 3D devices can really complement a child’s educations and inspire their creativity, so we’re pleased to know our device will be used in this way.”
If any schools or colleges would like to apply to use the printer for a limited period, please contact Kris Bale at Greensource Solutions via the contact form available here:http://www.greensourcesolutions.co.uk/contactform
