Educators worldwide have recognised the annual design & 3D printing contest for its positive impact on students. “Students have the opportunity to put their critical thinking skills to the test, as well as to demonstrate their creativity with this design contest,” says Jesse Roitenberg, Stratasys education channel manager. “Each year they demonstrate that they are up to the challenge, with the unique submissions we receive.”

Dimension 3D Printing will award nine student winners either $2,500 or $1,000 (approx £630 or £1,600) or scholarships in the categories of Middle School and Secondary School Engineering, University Engineering, and Art & Architecture. Designs are awarded based on creativity, usefulness, part integrity and aesthetics. Instructors of the three first-place student winners will receive an Apple iPad for use in the classroom. Since the contest’s inception, more than $90,000 (approx. £56,500) in scholarships have been awarded to students.

Each submission must:

be a sound mechanical design

be realistic and achievable

include a clear written description of the design.

This year’s contest will also feature an award category in which students may compete for a bonus prize. Students who incorporate a school spirit theme into their designs will have a chance to win a $250 (approx £157) gift card.
