We cannot be more excited to announce that Fusion 3, a North Carolina manufacturer of affordable, high performance 3D printers, has offered their F400-S 3D printer as the top raffle prize for this year’s conference!



F400-S 3D Printer

Based in Greensboro, Fusion 3 developed its F400-S with education users in mind.   As the role of 3D printers grows with the emphasis on STEM curriculum, educators require a solution that can complete prints quickly for an entire class.   With its large print area, the F400-S completes tasks in record time.   The F400-S is safe to use in the classroom or office, durable for constant operation, and backed by excellent customer support to ensure maximum up-time.   One of the few fully enclosed 3D printers, its optional air filtration captures smells and potentially harmful emissions from the air, and its large windows provide an engaging experience while protecting students from hot surfaces.   Not only are Fusion3’s products backed by the longest warranty offered by any 3D printer manufacturer, but Fusion3 also provides FREE lifetime technical support via phone & email.   Affordable at only $4,499 (minus standard educational and volume discounts), the F400-S promises to be a great addition to any school’s STEM curriculum, especially in an innovative MakerSpace learning environment.

Riviera Nano Cam Quadcopter Drone

The Riviera Nano Cam quadcopter is the perfect machine for those curious about quadcopters and drones.   Designed with simplicity in mind, it is light weight and its flight characteristics benefit from this design feature.   The 4 rotors are driven by 4 motors protected in plastic housings.   The rotors are also gear driven which relieves the stress on the motors.   The Nano handles exceptionally well.

With the push of a button on the transmitter the aircraft enter “trick mode” allowing the pilot to do flips and rolls.   The Nano transmitter features a 2.4ghz radio system.   This means you don’t have to worry about signal interference and you have the ability to fly many of these at one time.   The Nano Cam comes equipped with a built in HD camera, great for recording video and taking pictures.   Flight time is approximately 8-10 minutes on a full charge of 90 minutes.
