Polish startup injects creativity into 3D printing
Skriware shows teaching solutions which incorporate 3D printing, robotics
Polish startup Skriware continues to focus its energies on changing the curriculum in the Middle East, Asia and Europe, at Gitex 2018. Its hands-on learning experience for kids uses state-of-the-art technologies, like 3D-printed, fully programmable robots to teach the core building blocks of STEAM including coding and engineering.
The solution also includes easy-to-use 3D printers, as well as a set of online tools that aim to enrich current teaching methods and support the UAE's students in acquiring essential skills fulfilling demands of the 21st century.
"We actually started off as a 3D printing company," says Skriware chief executive officer, Karol Górnowicz. "When we looked at the research as to where most of the consumer printers were being sold, schools were actually driving most of the demand. However, we spotted that the major problem with 3D printers is that people do not know what to do with them. A lot of companies provide 3D printers but they don't provide the content solution per se."
With this in mind, the firm wants to not only create the robot, but also create a story around the programming which can then be bundled together with the group's 3D printers.
"If a school chooses our 3D printer, they have all different ideas with what to do with them. We have this hands on approach where children can combine this creative spirit with the whole concept of the programming which is set on Mars," Górnowicz says.
"We are here also to show the new prototypes including those related to Smart Cities which is very interesting in this market. We have high hopes to push more of these, as well of our 3D printers, at this year's event."
