As some of you may know last fall we opened our first STEAM Center as the first step towards creating our vision of creating a full solution for schools to get students excited about Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Below is a time lapse video of the center while it was being built:
A quick update about what we’ve been doing out of the center in the past months since our opening in September:
We partnered with the Hudson County Urban League to run a CAD and 3D printing summer camp for students from our local area. The class was a big success with plans to grow next year and bring some of the students back as mentors!
We also partnered with Jersey City Public Schools to create an exciting after school program based around Project e-Nable (3D printable prosthetics). We ran PD sessions out of the center and the program is now running smoothly with a culmination event for students to show of their 3D printed creations coming in March.
We have run several other programs as well including Open House events, Professional Development sessions, Class trips and more. Come by and check us out!
From all of us at PicoTurbine have a Happy New Year and we hope to see you in 2017!
