SkillsUSA Helps Develop Leadership Skills Through Educational and 3D Printing Competition

How can you teach students the skills need they may need for the future workforce while engaging them in fun activities? Studies show there is a widening gap between additive manufacturing (AM) skillsets needed on the job and the number of workers who can apply them. As 3D printing becomes more common, an emphasis on student-focused events is crucial to educate the future workforce on new technologies.

Additive Manufacturing Education Is Helping To Bridge The Workforce Development Gap

Additive manufacturing has become a useful and important technology across many industries. Unfortunately, there is a widening gap between additive manufacturing (AM) technology and the number of workers who have the necessary skills needed to implement it. The workforce that is in place is quickly aging out of market, and the future workforce will continue to need these valuable, additive ready skills. To bridge this gap, there needs to be a change in college curriculum surrounding additive manufacturing, ensuring that students will be AM workforce ready upon graduation.

+SocialGood Twitter Chat: The Potential of 3D Printing to Progress Global Goals

Last Thursday, +SocialGood, an international community comprised of change-makers who are passionate about global innovation through collaboration, hosted a technology-focused Twitter chat about 3D printing. They used this chat as a way for people worldwide to come together and share ideas to generate conversations around solutions for global goals. The focus of this chat was to explore the potential of 3D printing to progress global development goals.

Early Career Research In 3D Printing In Medicine

If you are a trainee in medicine (e.g. medical intern, resident, or clinical fellow), or if you earning a degree in the health sciences or biomedical engineering, here is your opportunity to showcase your cutting edge research findings in the journal 3D Printing in Medicine at no cost to you, if selected as one of the top ten papers for journal submission.

Celebrating Student Innovation and the Design Process With AET Labs And GrabCAD

In today’s technology-driven classrooms where student innovation is highlighted, text books have been replaced with Chromebooks, classroom designs are flexible and modular and hands-on, project-based learning (PBL) has become the new standard teaching method.

Educators agree that students exposed to PBL tend to be more engaged, have improved attendance and test scores, heightened social and emotional skills and develop essential soft skills which will help them to succeed in a rapidly-changing world.

The Path to Career Readiness Through Additive Manufacturing Certification

We’ve teamed up with Dunwoody College of Technology to offer a certificate in Additive Manufacturing. Students learn how to how to set-up, run, maintain and calibrate 3D printers, and adapt printing techniques to traditional manufacturing processes. The new, hands-on training offers Dunwoody students a path to career readiness not found at many other institutions.
