Trying to solve the issue of unemployment, something that is becoming more and more worrying throughout the European Union, since Samsung y MakeBot They have just created an educational program to try to teach new generations how to use new digital technologies. For this, among other measures, both companies have decided equip a number of educational institutions with 3D printers. Let us understand educational institutions such as any college, school and even museums.
In the first phase of the project, as announced by MakerBot, the way to teach digital skills in Germany, Sweden, Spain and the United Kingdom. One of the objectives of the program is to introduce all users who want to be part of it in the art of programming, additive manufacturing and other technological skills, making 3D printing much more accessible in places of education such as schools.

As he commented Evelyn nicola, responsible for the area of Sustainability & Citizenship of Samsung:
Responding to the alarming lack of skills and high levels of youth unemployment in 2013, we support the European Commission's Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs, committed to engaging 400.000 young people in 3D printing across Europe in the year 2019.
Imagine a nine-year-old girl with the idea of a new design, who is able to develop it and make it a reality at school and finally take it home. The experience of taking an idea to a digital concept and then to a physical object represents the future of learning and R&D
For, Andreas Langfeld, Managing Director of MakerBot EMEA:
Samsung and MarkerBot share the same vision to develop new technologies that help prepare students for the jobs of the future. 3D printing can help teach what is possibly considered one of the skills of the 3st century. We are excited to be able to work together with Samsung to help education and students discover the power of XNUMXD printing.
