The STEM Academy, a national non-profit status organization dedicated to improving STEM literacy for all students, today announced a partnership with Stratasys, manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for prototyping and manufacturing. The partnership incorporates Stratasys 3D printers into The STEM Academy’s curriculum programing to help students prepare for internships and careers.

“The manifestation of true STEM education is students solving open-ended problems,” said Russell Mickelson, CEO of The STEM Academy. “It is this critical thinking capability which elevates testing results.”

Incorporating Stratasys 3D printers into STEM education allows students to print designs of 3-dimensional objects into actual 3-dimensional objects. In addition to enhancing the learning experience, 3D printing technology also allows students to build a work portfolio while still in high school, better preparing students to earn internships and career advancement upon high school graduation.

“We see a growing importance of STEM education for our future workforce,” said Jesse Roitenberg, Stratasys education program manager. “The STEM Academy represents high quality programming, and we look forward to partnering with them to further the mission of STEM education.”
