PCF classes teach students how to create 3D objects such as chess pieces, keychain tags, and other small objects using a 3D printer on-site. At one of the schools where we taught our classes, a parent became inspired by our efforts to donate a 3D printer so that teachers could continue the program.

PCF will launch a similar effort at other schools where there are teachers capable and willing to take it over after a couple of months.
