My school got two Cameo Silhouette 3's this year, and so far have been
extremely happy with them! As far as I can tell, they do the same thing as
Cricuts. Students are using them for the FUSE program, a STEM/STEAM
elective put together by Northwestern University. The software is free to
download, however since it doesn't work on students' Chromebooks, they use
a few decommissioned old staff laptops in the class instead. No emails
