The TCT Inspired Minds Classroom, powered by CREATE Education, is providing 12 schools the opportunity to explore STEM and the ever-expanding industry that is additive manufacturing in a three-hour show floor experience at the TCT Show.
TCT has an ongoing mission to inspire and educate the next generation in the world of manufacturing, therefore, to continue this mission we are delighted to present TCT Inspired Minds at this years TCT Show. Through a partnership with CREATE Education, who will be offering over 300 high school students across the entirety of the STEM show, access to a variety of technologies and training relating to additive manufacturing.
CREATE Education partnering with Bloodhound Education and Autodesk has allowed the students to take part in a variety of activities throughout the day from developing their knowledge of 3D printing careers to designing and printing their very own models, all happening within the TCT Inspired Minds workshops.
Students will participate in the following activities:
Introduction to Industrial Additive Manufacturing
An introductory presentation to 3D printing and industrial applications gives the students the opportunity to learn all about the world of 3D printing and the industrial applications.
Inspired Minds Classroom Workshop
An interactive learning experience where students will get the chance to create their very own 3D lightweight wheel for the Bloodhound Supersonic Car using Autodesk Fusion 360 professional 3D modelling software.
TCT Show Tour
The TCT show tour provided is also the perfect opportunity for the students to experience what the best of the STEM industry has to offer and encourage the next generation of possible manufacturers, scientists, engineers and designers.
At the end of the day, teams of students from each school will have the opportunity to take away a Bloodhound model car along with their 3D printed wheels to assemble and race back at school to see which designs were the most effective. Teachers and students will also be provided with a selection of Tomorrows Engineers Careers Information and Resources.
