The world is evolving at an unprecedented level. The human race has come a long way from living in caves to living in furnished houses. Back then people used to communicate through signs, symbols, and drawings and now we not only speak various languages to communicate but also use emoticons to express our moods. Even the modern age technologies and living standards are being replaced by new, innovative, and efficient ways of living. One might anticipate spending the coming years on Moon or Mars. We can never know where these technological advancements might take us one day. The recent advancements like the 3D printed houses and schools are changing the whole scenario once again. Recently, young entrepreneur Maggie Grout opened a 3D-printed school in Madagascar.
3D Printed Schools
An amazingly shocking innovation of the current times has left every one stunned. The 3D printed schools, one of its kind, are solution to the modern day education gap. The first 3D printed school was opened in Malawi, a country in East Africa, which brought a significant change to the construction means in practice.
A less costly, efficient, timely and an innovative way of construction. The first successfully 3D printed school set the example for future constructions to take place using the same technology. This is exactly what happened; young entrepreneur Maggie Grout, has opened the world’s second 3D printed school in Madagascar.
Maggie is the founder of Thinking huts, a non-profit organization which works to make education accessible to all. The organization was established in 2015 with the aim of narrowing down the “global education opportunity gap” via 3D-printing. This aim coincides with the organization’s recent achievement in Madagascar.
Thinking Huts founder and CEO, Maggie Grout said “The past two years have shed light on the urgency of human-centric, innovative solutions to tackle the world’s most pressing problems.
“We look forward to growing as we address the need for schools while bringing people together and inspiring the next generation to make a difference. This is only the beginning.”
The organization goal is to build schools using 3D-printing technology first throughout Madagascar and then throughout the world to close down the educational gaps thus, ending poverty.
The cause, means and end results are commendable. At least, the governments wouldn’t have to think for years to open up schools and then take another century to build them. Since 3D printing technology takes far less time to construct a building and also stores the prototype as well. This would save time, money, and materials.
Creative mind backed by creative means can do wonders.
