Give Them a 3D Printer and They Will Build IT

Visitation Academy, an all girl middle school in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, introduced a 3D printer and computer-aided drafting software this year and is already planning to purchase a second 3D printer.  The students have taken to the new technology so readily, they taught their teacher how to use it.

Introducing technology classes in 2012, Visitation plans to further expand its STEM program to continue fostering the girls' interest and offer them exposure to career opportunities in the numerous STEM fields.
