3D AcademyA Division of 3D Innovations, LLC provides training services specializing in 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) Technology.

3D Academy promotes Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education programs that integrate 3D Technology into K–12, as well as university classrooms. Using hands-on and project based learning strategies, we have been effective in providing students with opportunities to excel in the areas of STEM and to integrate industry applications into their learning experiences. Our core program utilizes 3D CAD and takes students through the entire design process (design, prototyping, manufacturing, etc.). When integrated into school curriculum, our STEM education programs provides students with opportunities to solve real world design problems, engage with industry standard technology, and transform concepts into reality. Education programs are available statewide and have been integrated with many robotics programs such as FIRST, UROV,
BotBall, and First Lego League. Programs are both customizable and scalable to meet various applications and grade levels.

Below is a list of the educational services we offer:

Student Training Courses: 3D Academy is committed to furthering the integration of 3D CAD (Computer-Aided Design) technology at all levels of engineering instruction. The goal of the Student Training Courses is to introduce and maintain the power of 3D modeling technology to students in the classroom, to support the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and Robotics programs.

Teacher Training Courses: Integrate 3D CAD into Math/Science/Art classes through hands on project based learning activities.

Professional Development: Teachers can obtain Professional Development (PD) credits for courses taken. Advance your professional goals by taking approved courses through the PDE3 credit system.

Web Based Training Courses: In addition to onsite training courses, we also provide web based training modules to learn at your own pace.

CAD Support: Have installation problems? We provide support for all CAD training programs and also provide support contracts for software that you already have.

3D Printing/Rapid Prototyping: Transform your students’ virtual designs into functional prototypes by using 3D Printing.

3D Innovations & 3D Academy STEM Internship

June 14, 2012
3d-innovations.com

3D Innovations & 3D Academy are proud to announce that our summer intern has officially started!

About Our Intern: She is a Junior from Maui High School. She is a very goal oriented young lady and through this internship she has set two main goals for the summer:

  1. She wants to become more familiar with CAD and its related processes;
  2. She would also like to learn more about the engineering/design process to better their teams efforts in the Vex and FIRST Robotics programs.

Through this internship she plans on developing better problem solving methods and efficient design change methods. With high school graduation just a year away she is already planning for a major in Mechanical Engineering.

Our Internship: She will be working with 3D Innovations & 3D Academy to learn about the engineering/design process and assisting with various design projects. She will be involved with all aspects of design and how it is integrated with CAM, CAE, CFD, Rapid Prototyping, and Additive Manufacturing. The internship is from June 11th -July 13th.

We are very excited to have her as a part of our team! We hope that with the skills she learns this summer she will become a strong leader for the Vex and  FIRST Robotics programs and one step closer to achieving her career goal!

 

**Please share any internship, school or career advice you have with us for her. If you are a Mechanical Engineer we would love to hear from you! Do you have advice about college programs, college internships, courses? We will share the advice you post with her!**
