Southern Door Schools Receive 3D Printers from GE Additive Education Program

Southern Door is one of 400 schools in the nation that will receive 3D printing resources as a part of a grant received from the GE Additive Education Program. Committed to developing pipelines of future talent in additive manufacturing around the world, GE will send the high school a desktop polymer printer package which includes two 3D printers, software and supplies for the printers, and a STEAMtrax module 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.

Superintendent Patti Vickman said, “These resources and the ability to connect with other schools in the country will enhance the opportunities provided to our students in the district’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Agriscience, Math (STEAM) curriculum.”
