To the future delight of hundreds of lucky German schoolchildren, TCT Bright Minds will make its debut this year at EuroMold 2014, which is hailed as one of the prime design, application, and mold-making trade show events in Germany annually. In expanded efforts to offer German pupils exposure to the latest 3D technologies and technical innovations, the following companies are bringing this program to EuroMold 2014:

Bright Minds-3d Printing workshops

Students engaged during TCT Bright Minds Program

TCT Bright Minds will offer a program consisting of workshops held in a classroom built with ultra-modern glass walls, an attention-grabber for students from the start. Students have the opportunity to learn about CAD 3D printing technologies using technical equipment made specifically for this program, and donated free-of-charge by 3D Systems. With access to 3D Systems’ Cube printers, 3D scanning technology, as well as a haptic based 3D mouse and the new iterations of the Cube and the CubePro, it’s complete immersion into 3D printing and 3D design.

Cathy Lewis, Chief Marketing Officer of 3D Systems, stated: “We are excited to partner once again with Rapid News, TCT and BCA on this powerful education initiative, and are delighted to bring it to Frankfurt with EuroMold organizers, DEMAT. We are committed to bringing 21st century tools, programs and technologies to students and schools across the globe. This program extension helps us further realize this goal.”

As part of the positive worldwide push for more education based in science, technology, engineering, and manufacturing (STEM), the Bright Minds program includes a customized course developed by Black Country Atelier, a specialist provider of 3D printing services in education. Their programs include teacher training, curriculum development, and long-term partnerships in the digital design and manufacturing industry. BCA creates world-leading classrooms working with teachers and students, both in-house and via its online platform, to build capacity and confidence.

After the TCT Bright Minds program had such great success in England, it’s hoped that this event may be the catalyst for embedding 3D technology courses in German schools. Designed for middle- and high-school students, each session lasts approximately two hours and awards participants entry to all of EuroMold 2014, being held from November 25-28, 3014.

Euromold celebrated its 20-year anniversary in 2013. Based on the process chain “from design to prototype to series,” it presents products and services, technologies and innovations, trends and tendencies for the markets of the future. EuroMold offers a unique trade fair concept that closes the gap between industrial designers, product developers, fabricators, suppliers, and users.
