Southern Door Receives Grant for 3D Printing

Southern Door is one of 400 schools across the nation that will receive 3D printing resources as part of a grant received from the GE Additive Education Program. GE will send the high school a desktop polymer printer package with two 3D printers, software and supplies for the printers and a Streamtrax modular kit called “tinkering with turbines.” GE specialists evaluated each school’s application earlier this spring. Southern Door was one of about a dozen schools chosen in Wisconsin. Southern Door Superintendent Patti Vickman said the resources will enhance the opportunities provided to students in the district’s science, engineering, art/agriscience, math curriculum. GE created their “Additive Education Program” in January, committing to invest ten million dollars globally over the next five years to develop pipelines to future talent in additive manufacturing.
