Studica recently attended the US News STEM Solutions Expo in Washington, DC. This National Leadership conference brings employers and educators together to solve the STEM education crisis in the United States. We had a great time and were able to showcase our great education offerings such as the fischertechnik STEM Lab program with curriculum created by Tom White, various fischertechnik offerings for education and Unity game development platform (with the exciting news that Unity 5 has been announced). We also shared information about the SREB (Southern Regional Education Board) Advanced Career (AC) program that is part of the High Schools That Work Initiative. We were also able to demonstrate the most affordable desktop 3D printer available to date, the Da Vinci 1.0.
Da Vinci 1.0 Desktop 3D Printer
The new Da Vinci 1.0 is a revolutionary desktop 3d printer because it is affordable. It is plug-n-play, making it very simple and easy to use. Because the price is so low (under $500 in the USA) this is a great solution for home and small business 3D printing needs. At this cost, it is reasonable to think about bringing 3D printing into the classroom. There are several ways that 3D printing for education promotes learning benefits for students. This makes it a terrific time consider bringing this engaging technology into your school.
#3DMona Contest Winner
As a fun way to bring the Da Vinci 1.0 3d printer out into the world, we asked attendees to put their best "Mona Lisa" face forward. We had a small sign with the Mona Lisa where they put their faces in and we asked to tweet their pic with #3DMona. We had a great response and enjoyed all the photos. You can see all our beautiful (and handsome) Mona Lisa photos here. We are sending a big thank you out to all those who entered the contest for their chance to win a Da Vinci 1.0 3d printer. We would like to congratulate our winner, Sharon Vestal! She did a great job tweeting about the #3DMona contest and had a terrific smile. However, we do have to pay a special mention for the best beard to Matthew Duda
