Johnson College will host its 3D Printing Competition for local high school students on Friday, March 22, 2024, on its Scranton campus. This year’s challenge requires students to design a device that will launch a projectile across the Johnson College gym.
The student who wins the challenge will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Johnson College.
The 3D Print Challenge aims to captivate the interest of high school students by immersing them in a dynamic post-secondary curriculum. Recognizing the significance of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) as a crucial tool in numerous STEM-related professions, this competition serves as a catalyst for fostering creative thinking and honing problem-solving skills. The objective is to empower students, enabling them to thrive in both their educational journey and future professional endeavors.
This engaging competition not only encourages imaginative exploration but also cultivates valuable connections between students and industry partners. By showcasing the various pathways from education to careers, the competition facilitates meaningful interactions that hold significance for both students and potential employers.”
