Our 3D Academy will be an exhibitor at the upcoming RobotX STEM Expo. Our team will have a booth at the event and will be conducting a hands-on session demonstrating the VPerch program as well as discussing the ways in which 3D printing technology can be implemented into the classroom.
In partnership with HI FusionEd, Office of Naval Research (ONR), and Navatek, VPerch was created to provide students with the opportunity to learn about various STEM applications as they relate to underwater robotics.
The emphasis of VPerch is to introduce students to the engineering design process through the virtual design (3D CAD) process where they can design and simulate (virtually test) their UROV design and analyze the results before building the physical system. Using the virtual design and simulation process, students see first-hand how their design will perform under certain conditions. Once their virtual design is completed and have enough confidence that it will perform as designed, they migrate to the build phase where they can build their ROV based on their virtual design specifications. We look forward to talking more about the VPerch program and demonstrating it at the RobotX STEM Expo.
3D printing technology promotes active and hands-on learning while having the power to open a world of career possibilities to students.
3D printing inspires creativity and can help encourage students to explore a career in engineering or science.
