Additive Manufacturing Competition in Texas

In early May, we journeyed to College Station, Texas, to host an Additive Manufacturing competition at the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station Facility for Advanced Manufacturing. The event involved three local high schools — Ball High School, William B. Travis High School, and Lake Creek High School. They were challenged to design a 1:43 slot car body to fit a chassis. Judging criteria included completing all printing within the allocated time frame, ensuring proper post-processing of the car body, and testing if the race car could successfully complete a jump on the track provided. Additionally, each team had to bring a 3D-printed bridge to the competition, which was then tested with weighted blocks to determine its load-bearing capacity.

Maritime Welding Competition in Rhode Island

More than 150 Rhode Island students got an up-close look at careers in manufacturing and defense at the Maritime Welding Competition and Career Exploration Event sponsored by Project MFG, General Dynamics Electric Boat, and SENEDIA–The Alliance for Defense Tech, Talent, and Innovation.

With 16 students competing from five area schools, Alexis Lozada from Providence Career and Technical Academy took home top honors in the welding competition portion, during which the students were timed and judged on their ability to weld a miniature submarine. Hannah Dion from CHARIHOtech and Zachary DeCorpo from Warwick Area Career and Technical Center came in second and third place, respectively.

These regional winners are invited to compete at Project MFG’s national competition and will receive an expenses-paid trip to Pennsylvania to do so in June.
