Rowan's 3D Printing Lab Fund

Donation protected
I'm Rowan!

Three years ago I went to Maker Faire and I was intrigued by the capability of 3D printers. Ever since then I have wanted to understand how to design and print my own ideas using 3D printers. I have done LOTS of research and learned how to use the 3D printing software. The hard part for me is saving enough money to buy a printer. I have worked very hard doing chores and saving as much as I can, but I am now asking for your help.

My hope is not to just print things for me. I want to start a business!

I plan on creating items for people and selling them cheaper than they can buy them at a store.  Pens, propellers, trinkets, tools, name it, I will make it!  To do that I will need the 3D printer, the monitor, the scanner and a recycler so that I don't waste any product.

I have learned that it is important to support others around me. To do that I am going to donate 10% of my profit to my school and charities that support kids in my community (like Social Advocates for Youth and MentorMe Petaluma). I am also hoping to teach a class to kids showing them how to use the software and use these tools themselves. It would be great if one day I could give them a printer from my business.

I would like to start this business by summer since I will have lots of time, so I am hoping you can help me this spring. 

I am so thankful that you might be willing to help me.

Thank you!
