A new organization based out of Galilee is helping Israeli and Arab students learn 3D printing together. Called Moona, the organization is a pun of the word “wish” in Arabic, “moon” in English, and “faith” in Hebrew.
Located in Majd al Kurum in Israel, the organization’s goal is to help students that come from the lowest socio-economic status get an education they can use to find jobs in the high-tech sector. Funding from a number of tech companies in the area allows Moona to keep operating with a budget of $1 million a year.
As of right now, students can learn a number of skills in addition to 3D printing, including hardware and software development and robotics. So far, the school helps 750 students a year and is hoping to expand that number in the future.
