UPDATE (5/7/2016): Photos from the 2016 Hawaii STEM Conference can now be viewed on our Facebook page, here.

We are thrilled to share that 3D Innovations will be in attendance at the 7th Annual Hawaii STEM Conference presented by the Maui Economic Development Board and Women in Technology. This is an event that we look forward to each year. This year the conference is on May 6th &  7th, and we will be hosting two different events, one each day.

conferenceFriday, May 6th: We will be hosting a design and pitch competition. Students will be given a set of requirements and then allowed to develop their own product, devise a business plan, a marketing plan, and a final pitch to a panel of judges. With this hands-on approach, students will learn about design, manufacturing, business, finance, marketing, and entrepreneurship.

Saturday, May 7th: We will be conducting a drone design and building workshop for teachers. This workshop will cover the basics of drones—how to design and build them, and how to integrate the curriculum into their classrooms.

While drones are finding a place in many industries, academia is also an area where they are thriving. This is another hands-on tool that is relatively low-cost and allows teachers to bring lessons to life for students.

If you are planning on being in attendance at the conference, please take a moment to stop by and introduce yourself. We love meeting new people and sharing our passion for STEM education with new friends.
