3D Manufacturing Lab Update


VOLUNTEERS AND TEACHERS needed! We are developing a future curriculum around the 3D Manufacturing Lab.  We still need volunteers and are working with Alief ISD to bring the quadcopter competition to fruition in December. If you interested in 3D manufacturing, we need your help as a mentor for our Quadcopter Competition.  This is a tremendous opportunity to learn Project Management and supervisory skills as we need engineers to work with High School students in designing and building quadcopters.  If you have an interest in this cutting-edge technology, we want you!  Work on the quadcopters will be in the late afternoon and on weekends and we will work with your work schedule.

If you are interested in being a part of this exciting and educational opportunity, please contact Stephen Vasconi via email and RSVP.
