BIZ3D stem program

Kiss your traditional high school STEM Program goodbye. Biz3D blends entrepreneurship and 3D printing in an 18-hour, standards-aligned high school program.




Why you should use biz3d

After learning about 3D printing, its uses in various industries and its impact on entrepreneurship, careers, and society, students brainstorm a start-up idea with a product they design in CAD program and 3D print.  They learn, develop and pitch their business plan.  A great capstone project that combines 21st-century skills, entrepreneurship, and practical design, technology and business skills, it can be integrated into any class or used as an enrichment program.  Biz3D was developed by the Youngstown Business Incubator, Youngstown State University College of STEM, and Youth Entrepreneurship Program with support from America Makes, the Federal laboratory for additive (3D) manufacturing.

INVENTORcloud Program is supporting Biz3D by providing professional development, access to all instructional materials, support for 3D printing and instruction in computer-aided design (CAD), if necessary.  Please contact Julie Michael Smith at [email protected] or 330-727-6292 for more information.
