The brightest minds in DigiFab learning to expand your interaction with innovative education and workforce training communities!
According to Fab Lab Hub founder Sarah Boisvert who organizes the conference, “DigiFabCon is thrilled to be in Pittsburgh with its vibrant additive manufacturing community and engaged STEM ecosystem. America Makes recognizes that a trained workforce is essential to the adoption of new disruptive technologies and their new programs that include certifications and Digital Badges are key to Industry 4.0’s success”.
According to Monsi Roman, program manager for NASA’s Centennial Challenges and Lex Akers, dean of Bradley’s Caterpillar College of Engineering and Technology,”The final milestone of this competition is a culmination of extremely hard work by bright, inventive minds who are helping us advance the technologies we need for a sustainable human presence on the Moon, and then on Mars. We celebrate their vision, dedication, and innovation in developing concepts that will not only further NASA’s deep-space goals, but also provide viable housing solutions right here on Earth.
It is an impressive achievement for these two teams to demonstrate this disruptive and terrific 3D-printing technology at such a large scale. By teaming up with NASA and Caterpillar, we are proud to bring these teams together in an environment where they can innovate, create and challenge our vision of what’s possible. Congratulations to both teams for their accomplishments.”
