Carving into STEM with Inventables
Our guest this week is Zach Kaplan. As founder and CEO of Inventables, Kaplan hopes to inspire and enlist a new wave of makers with tools like Carvey (a desktop 3D carving machine) and Easel (a simple and free cloud-based app for 3D design to carving). In schools, with an increased focus on engineering and a push to include more STEAM classes and Makerspaces, these tools are also providing students with an opportunity to learn career and college ready skills in a hands-on and authentic manner. Zach joins us to discuss Inventables, the growth of the maker movement, and the future of desktop fabrication and manufacturing.
