Laser Engraving for Teachers: A Guide

Schools are a perfect place for laser engravers. Because of their versatility, engravers can be used for a variety of different projects. As well, they can help kids understand scientific concepts.

Below, we’ll explain what you need to know if you want to put a laser engraver in your school.

What Can Laser Engravers Be Used for?


If there are any competitions at your school, laser engravers offer a great opportunity to personally engrave the trophies or plaques. Over time, owning a laser engraver is cheaper than paying someone to personalize every trophy.


Just like laser engravers can be used for awards, they can also be used for any necessary signage. It’s great to have a laser engraver if teachers regularly change offices, since this allows everyone to get personalized signs or placards.


There are also a number of different clubs that can use laser engravers. The engraver’s versatility means it can hold appeal for both left brained and right brained types. Artistic types and scientific types alike can use engravers to help them work on projects.

How Do You Get Kids Excited About Laser Engraving?

If you’re working with kids who are interested in arts or engineering, there’s a good chance they’ll be excited at the prospect of working with a laser engraver: it’s a powerful tool which has only recently become affordable, and it has a variety of potential uses.

In situations where there doesn’t seem to be much excitement around the engraver, you can let kids know how it can be useful for engraving in different materials. Even if they’re not interested in engraving metal, they may be interested in engraving wood, plastic, leather, or some other material.

Of course, it’s important to keep close watch over the laser engraver. You want to make sure the settings aren’t tampered with, as this could ruin materials or cause the machine to break.
