3D Systems recently sponsored a contest called Reality Redesigned which was produced by our friends at Edge Factor.   Reality Redesigned provided an opportunity for students to design part of a mountain bike, learn and win a variety of great prizes – plus recognition. The students were part of the entire process, from ideation to the production of the part.  3D Systems printed the full color prototypes of the finalists designs for display at the announcement event. The winner of the contest was chosen by a panel of expert judges and formally announced at RAPID 2012 in Atlanta, GA. What is really exciting is the winning part will be manufactured and tested by a pro rider.  So, not only did the contest engage students in a fun and productive way – it allowed them to use 3D printers! And the episodes will all be made available for STEM curriculum! A great way for 3D Systems to support education! Check out the winners!
