The University of Virginia’s mechanical and aerospace engineering program is one of the best in the United States, in part because of its commitment to hands-on learning. With six uPrint 3D Printers and a Fortus 3D Production System running every day, UVA’s rapid prototyping lab is where theory and imagination become objects that either make it or flop in the real world.
3D PRINTING BOOSTS A MINNESOTA DISTRICT’S K-12 LEARNING
“We’ve had kids that were barely hanging in there in school and 3D printing is what really lit them up and got them to the point where they were on the path to a high-paying career.” — Jim Lynch, Apple Valley High School
At the Southern Maine Community College (SMCC) in Portland, Maine (U.S.A.), the simulator lab consists ofseven Hydraulic Excavator Personal Simulators equipped with OEM Controls.
The aim is to design and build a single-seater car which races on a course normally reserved for Formula 1. Formula Student is also a place where innovation is very much at home, particularly when it comes to new manufacturing methods and design engineering.
A video prepared by the Las Vegas Southeast Career and Technical Academy (SECTA) about using Simlog’s Hydraulic Excavator Personal Simulator in its Construction Technology Program.
Chabot Community College (CCC) in Hayward, California was looking for a vendor to supply professional 3D laser scanning systems for their engineering classrooms to bring greater opportunity for hands-on learning with industry standard equipment and to better prepare their students for their fields.
It’s always a good thing when students are excited about learning, and in a recent trip to Escandon Elementary, a school that has been working diligently with the LJ Create program to increase their standardized test scores in science, we could hardly stop one of the students from excitedly telling us about everything she had learned using Living with STEM.
"We are becoming more targeted in helping all student groups," says Wendy Grohler, Elementary Science Coordinator for McAllen ISD.

“3D printing overcomes technical barriers for students. What used to be strenuous to produce by traditional methods can now be done with the press of a button. The process is simpler than we expected but the impact has been remarkable as it inspires students and induces creative thinking.”
