GEAR UP Family Event

GEAR UP Family Event

Our world is becoming more interactive, innovative, and inclined to those who imagine beyond the confines of our current reality. Recognizing the (more than) 100 BILLION DOLLAR market potential for 3D printing/additive manufacturing, augmented reality, and virtual reality, on November 28, 2017, GEAR UP hosted a family night at Somerset Community College’s 3D printing lab. Alongside Professor Eric Wooldridge and Lab Technician, Eric Harris, attendees created their own piece of augmented reality, explored the universe in virtual reality, examined 3D printers with their prototypes, and learned how to be a co-creator of this future through educational possibilities and career opportunities. This event was made possible through a collaboration between GEAR UP Promise Zone and Somerset Community College’s Digital Printing Technology Program Coordinator, Eric Wooldridge.
