Students from the Okaloosa County School District's STEMM Center associated with the Doolittle Innovation Institute will present on their first-hand experience with 3D printing, which involved creating prototypes to solve real business problems for companies in the area. Students were able to explore this new technology during their engineering design curriculum utilizing the 3D printer on loan to the institute through Sterling.
