NVBAA (Nevada Business Aviation Association) in partnership with GRADD (Global Robot And Drone Deployment) has launched a program to provide a FREE 3D Printing service for K-12 students in Nevada.
Through this innovative program, students and teachers in Nevada will have the opportunity to learn how to design their own 3D parts and send their completed files to electronically to the NVBAA/GRADD team for printing. Our team will then print the parts on our 3D printers housed at the GRADD offices in Las Vegas and ship them back all FREE of charge to the students and teachers in Nevada. The 3D printers utilized as part of the program also have webcams attached, so students can observe the 3D printing process remotely via the internet in real-time. This allows for students to reap the benefits of learning how to design 3D parts, and print their 3D parts, without the costs associated with buying/maintaining a 3D printer or resin/filament.
If you are a teacher/administrator interested in participating in our 3D printing program to your classroom/school, please contact us at (702) 879-9100, click here to submit your inquiry, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or info@NVBAA.org.
The GRADD & NVBAA team hopes to expand the outreach of the “Free 3D Printing for Nevada’s K-12” program over the 2015-2016 school year, and is continuing to raise funds to purchase additional printing resources.

The GRADD+NVBAA team kicked off the “Free 3D Printing for Nevada’s K-12” program with a live 3D printing demonstration to spectators of the Reno Air Races 2015 from their booth in the “Drone Zone,” providing an excellent opportunity for students, their parents, and teachers to observe the burgeoning 3D printing industry in action. The GRADD+NVBAA team produced over 650 miniature 3D-printed F-86 Sabre jets at their booth in the “Drone Zone”, for students to take home with them over the September 17-20, 2015 time period. (Read more about the 3D printing demo at the Reno Air Races on the press release here.)
“We are committed to raising the bar and expanding our award-winning STEM education programs throughout the Great State of Nevada. Providing 3D printing to any teacher in Nevada that wants to introduce their students to this fantastic technology is just another step on our way to bringing unbiased / zip-code independent access to the underrepresented youth in Nevada”, said Reza Karamooz, President of NVBAA, CEO of GRADD.
