Passing the Torch - Solid Innovations Demonstrates 3D Printing for Local Elementary School
- Liberty Elementary School, Great Meadows New Jersey -
Liberty Elementary School, located in the secluded hills of the surrounding Mountain Lake community, is a thriving learning environment for the young minds that inhabit its classrooms. The teaching and administrative staff here work tirelessly to provide students at Liberty with a steady stream of information and knowledge to best prepare them for a rapidly evolving world. This, however, is certainly not a novel approach, and is echoed across the country by educational institutions ranging from grade school all the way through universities.
Youth across America face increasingly competitive academic and job markets. As competition increases, both domestically and globally, educators are tasked with preparing students to succeed and excel beyond previous generations.
To provide students with a leg up on the competition, Liberty Elementary school staff offer students the ability to join the Liberty Engineering Club. The club focuses on instilling an appreciation and love for applied sciences while building on individual student ability to identify, approach, and solve engineering problems in a logical fashion.
Previous club projects have included board game design, lighthouse architecture analysis and, most recently, bridge creation & optimization.
During the groups last meeting of the year, Solid Innovations showcased 3D-Printing technology and helped students understand the manufacturing process as they watched the machine build parts. Students were immediately drawn and fascinated by the 3D-Printer as it moved about building a whistle for their club instructor.
It's moments like these that show 3D-Printing's potential to significantly alter how the next generation views manufacturing. This technology will change the world and greatly impact a child's education & creativity. We look forward to seeing the explosion of creativity this new generation has to offer.
