Ben McKay and Ian Chapin demonstrated 3D printing capabilities to Statesboro High School students for Georgia Stem day May 8.

Georgia STEM Day is a day for schools, students, teachers, and companies to raise awareness, celebrate, and engage in activities involving science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

The students were amazed at how the 3D printer worked. They had some prior knowledge about how 3D technology works from television shows and stories; however, seeing the printer in action, actually printing layer by layer, truly astonished them. The FabLab demonstration was such a hit, it was hot topic on Snap Chat among Statesboro High School students by the end of the day.

The FabLab at City Campus will include 3D printers, a 3D scanner, CNC machines, a laser cutter and other cutting-edge technology for making product prototypes. Entrepreneurs will soon have a “one stop shop” to create, establish, and grow their companies right here in Statesboro.
