'Sightline Maps' is a California-based start-up that has launched a campaign on Kickstarter for the purposes of bringing its innovative topographic maps to classrooms around the world to teach kids about everything from science and geography to digital fabrication.

The 3D-printed topographic maps are created through a web platform that makes it possible for students to make 3D models of different parts of the world, using the most up-to-date information available. By making it possible for students to have access to the most accurate data, Sightline Maps is providing a highly engaging and interactive way for students to get their hands on models of world-famous landmarks, historical sties or locations close to their own school.

For its crowdfunding project, Sightline Maps will be putting $100 towards providing a school with a year's subscription to the web platform.
