  • M.Lab21 Initiative seeks to bring shop class into the 21st century with new technologies including 3D equipment and curriculum
  • Pilot intends to reach 200 schools in the SME network

ROCK HILL, S.C., June 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) and SME announced a collaborative initiative to enhance high school industrial arts and vocational education classes through the new M.Lab21 initiative. This program will offer starter kits to transform shop classes and incorporate additive manufacturing into curriculums.

"This new initiative is exactly the type of program that will help prepare students to compete in the 21 st century," said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker. "Too many young people still do not understand that a career in manufacturing can be challenging, rewarding, and noble way to earn a good living. By connecting manufacturers directly with schools, we can work to change these perceptions, and get students excited about the manufacturing jobs of the future." The full keynote introducing M.LAB21 is available here.

3DS will provide starter kits with the latest 3D design and printing technology, including the Touch haptic, Sense 3D scanner, advanced prosumer desktop printers, and a suite of Cubify design software. SME will work with industry experts to identify the knowledge and skills necessary for the next generation workforce and develop the curriculum based on those needs.

"This partnership will provide a comprehensive approach that combines the hands-on tools and equipment with the equally important curriculum that addresses competencies required by the industry in the area of 3D printing," said Dennis Bray, chief executive officer of SME.
