GE’s Additive Education Program Manufactures the Future Additive Manufacturing Workforce
GE announced a US$10 million investment in a new GE Additive Education Program whereby it buys 3D printers for primary and secondary schools, as well as universities. This will expose students to the technology at an early age and encourage research into advanced additive manufacturing (AM) technologies with hopes that this will indirectly help accelerate industrial adoption. It is sending about 400 elementary and high schools a desktop polymer printer package and eight colleges or universities a metal printing machine.
