How to Print the Summer STEM Challenge Cards
- Printer (I have this one)
- Paper / Cardstock
I have the HP printer 8710 but it’s not available anymore. It’s still running well for years now. Look for another HP Instant Ink-ready printer so that you can use their program to send you ink cartridges whenever your printer gets low on ink.
