Stratasys and SME work together in order to give students the experience they need to succeed in the future at Skills USA.
Skills USA is a partnership between students, teachers and industry; they work together to ensure that America maintains a skilled, STEM-educated workforce. The 52nd annual SkillsUSA 2016 National Leadership and Skills Conference was held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky, where over 6,000 Career and Technical Education (CTE) students competed in hands-on trade, technical and leadership contests.
Stratasys and SME were honored to play leading roles in the Skills USA Additive Manufacturing competition for the second year in a row. Their goal is to work together in order to give students the experience they need to succeed in the future. During the competition, Stratasys supplied 3D printers, materials and assistance to SME, which relied on Stratasys’ 3D printing expertise when it came time to print the students’ projects. The notebook students presented to the judges was also provided by Stratasys. SME members and a Stratasys Applications Engineer judged the competition, and SME announced the winners on their website.
