Challenge

According to UNESCO, 615 million children cannot read a single sentence. How do we prevent health epidemics, lift economies, and empower people in creating innovative solutions? Education directly influences attainable opportunities. In Madagascar, 1 out of 3 primary age children will not finish school. Overcrowding is one of the largest factors in preventing children from receiving a quality education.

Solution

Building a 3D printed school will help solve the issue of overcrowding, create opportunities, decrease construction time, and environmental waste - supporting education access will have ripple effects in the community.

Long-Term Impact

We aim to disrupt traditional school construction methods and use the power of technology to effect socially impactful change. Aligning ourselves with the United Nations' SDGs 4 and 9, we are supporting quality education, industrial innovation, and infrastructure.
