School program using 3D printer sparks girls' interest in technology | FayObserver.com | Women in Technology | Scoop.it

Ellie Pilioglos barely moved as one of her classmates ran a hand-held scanner across her body.

 

A computer generated image of Ellie soon appeared on a computer screen. A few minutes later, a 3D printer began to create a small plastic model of Ellie.

 

Each month, about 30 teenagers gather at Douglas Byrd High School on a Saturday to explore the world of 3D technology.

 

The program, called 3D-Grees, began last fall to spark girls' interests in science, technology, mathematics and engineering.

 

So far, the teenagers have designed 3D blueprints using software and a 3D printer. They've also learned about creating prosthetics, virtual worlds and 3D video games. Their next project will focus on robotics.

 

The girls participate in various labs related to 3D content development, scanning and printing, said Yolanda Epps, an assistant principal at Douglas Byrd High School who developed the program.

 

A majority of the girls involved in the program are ninth- and 10th-graders.

 

"There is an underrepresentation of females in science, technology, engineering and mathematics," Epps said. "We want the field to be as diverse as possible. One way to help solve that problem is for girls to get involved in a program like this."

 

The girls are exposed to emerging technology in the engineering field, such as computer software used by NASA, Epps said.

 

"I want them to have highly sought-after employability skills after high school," she said. "This program allows them to be college ready and career ready."
