How can the xTool laser cutters
contribute to your classroom?

Active learning

The xTool laser machines support a hands-on learning experience as students play an active role in the in the utilization of the laser technology for fabrication.

Both individual and collaborative work

The xTool laser cutters allow students to create their own ideas, either individually or by collaborating in groups, to come up with their designs and solutions.

Non-linear/creative learning path

The laser cutting and engraving capabilities of the xTool machines offer an area of exploration for students to follow their own learning path in the process of creation, while minimizing the complexity of the fabrication process. The possibilities open up even more when they use the laser cutters in combination with other tools like robots or electronic components.

A tool for teachers as well

The laser cutters provide the ability to create and customize classroom resources in a flexible, quick, and convenient way. They represent significant costs savings over time compared to outsourcing, and they are significantly faster than 3D printing.
