The School District U-46 STEM Expo Kick-Off Events are November 5th at Poplar Creek Library, November 8th at the Bartlett Public Library, November 14th at Gail Borden Library (Main Branch) and November 15th at the Gail Borden Library (Rakow Branch)
The Beckatt table will demonstrate the capabilities of a variety of 3D printing technologies, including popular methods such as FDM, SLA and SDL, and will display a variety of models printed on 3D printers. "We are excited about representing the 3D printing world at the District U-46 STEM Expo Kick-Off Events" said Michael Storey. He added, "These four events give us the opportunity to not only show students and parents samples of 3D printed parts, but to educate the attendees on a variety of 3D printing methods, and to demonstrate to those in the education sphere about the advantages of implementing 3D printers in their curricula".
The U-46 STEM EXPO is an opportunity for K-12 students to create a project in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, and present to critiquing, fellow students, families, and community members. Students are encouraged to explore a question or concept that interests them, create a project, and share their learning with their community. Volunteer Judges will provide a critique of each participant's project. The U-46 STEM Expo will take place on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019 at Bartlett High School.
