Graphics Systems Teaches Middle Schoolers about SolidWorks and 3D Printing

June 3, 2014

Graphics Systems Corp. hosted a visit from the 7th and 8th graders from Ozaukee Christian School in Saukville, Wisconsin. Business Development Managers Mark Fischer and Wolfgang Hemschik talked to the kids about 3D printers and SOLIDWORKS.

"It was fun to visit with the school kids," said Mark Fischer. "We talked about what SOLIDWORKS is, what 3D printers do, and what you can do with both of these tools. They were really excited and interested in how the software and the printers worked."

Additionally, the kids were told what high school classes to take and focus on if they had an interest in 3D engineering. "We wanted to help them get some direction if this was something that they are interested in," explained Mark Fischer. "It's absolutely a growing field, so if we can gauge their interest and provide them with some guidance early on, that's something we'd like to help them do."
