ToyPrints was conceived by a group of individuals who were looking to give back to the Austin community by making a short and long term impact in the lives of children. What do all children love? Toys!
ToyPrints gives underprivileged children the ability to imagine a toy, then design and create it through 3D printing technology. Through this process, we introduce these children to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) in a fun and encouraging environment.
Working with local schools and charities, ToyPrints is looking to help other children experience the joy of creating something while learning at the same time. We aim to rebuild their trust, foster collaboration, and be the spark to positively impact their outlook.
Austin is our home. 21% of children live below the poverty line in Austin and don’t have as much access to mentors, education and programs as other well off children, impacting their ability to live out their dreams. Austin is such a unique city, bringing together technology and arts and we believe that underprivileged children should be able to benefit and then ultimately contribute back to that in the future. Help us to make a difference in the community, give kids the advantage to realize their potential while having fun.
In 2020, we are looking to raise money to help children design thier very own 3D-printed toys, and in the process, empower them to believe in themselves and thier potential.
Donate today, and help us empower children to think big and design a better future!
