EXCITE STUDENTS OF ALL AGES WITH A LASER
Provide students the ability to learn STEAM through their own interests with a laser engraving/cutting machine. A wide range of real-life applications attracts students to learn the physics of CO2 laser, 3 axis motion and improve use of computer software, transforming them into thinkers and builders well before they reach the job market.
Theater students can use the laser for sets, props and costumes. Athletes can engrave things like baseball bats, gloves, shoes and sports balls. Artistic students can work on their design skills while producing art with the laser. The musically inclined can engrave names or inspirational quotes onto music instruments. The best part? It’s easy enough for a 10-year-old to use.
FASTER THAN A 3D PRINTER
Like a 3D printer, a laser also features 3 axis motion with computer numerical control (CNC). But, the cutting and engraving speed of AP Lazer is up to 500x faster than that of a 3D printer. A simple 3D letter would take hours to produce with a 3D printer; a laser can produce the same object in minutes. Although a laser machine can not directly construct a 3D object as a 3D printer does, it’s speed will allow the whole class of students try their own small projects within one class period.

WHAT EDUCATORS ARE SAYING
“Not only are [the students] intrigued by how it works, but they also realize the many opportunities that a laser machine opens for them out in the world. Some of them see it and immediately think of how to start a small business using it, while some see it as a useful tool for existing enterprises.” Steve Shannon, Instructor, John D. Rockefeller IV Career Center
“If money were no object, the laser cutter would be my No. 1 tool, as it is perhaps the most versatile tool that I have ever used.”
Casey Shea, California high school math teacher and “Maker Educator”
“The number of things we could find to use this machine for are countless! There isn’t a program offered today which hasn’t been changed with the incorporation of technology. This is why we selected a laser engraving system, and it has definitely improved our curriculum.”
George Danford, Career Center Director
