A Busy Science Fair Day on the Way!

March 9, 2016

Propellant Tank - Lockheed MartinLockheed Martin, Incodema, Binghamton University, and BOCES New Visions Academy will be offering our workshop entitled 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing this year. This workshop will provide an introduction to the concepts of 3D printing, including capabilities and flexibility of designs, different materials that can be printed, and ways that 3D printing is changing engineering and design today. There will be a “stage show” explaining concepts and showing examples, followed by a “hands-on” session where attendees can see and touch examples of 3D printed items, as well as participate in interactive 3D printing exercises.

It’s only three days away! The judges eagerly await seeing the great projects coming their way! See you on the 12th!
