Middle School 3D Printing Competition

You get to 3D-design a wind turbine blade, 3D-print it, test it in the 3D-wind tunnel and SCORE! Register today!

Take the challenge by yourself, with a friend or as part of a team from your school. There is no homework or preparation, just come to the

Who: Middle School – High School students can compete as individuals or as part of a team of up to 4 participants.                                                                                                         When: Saturday, November 21 starting at 9:00 AM and ending at 3 PM                           What: 3D-Design/3D-Print/3D-Score Challenge during the Xtreme BOTS robotics competition  
Where: McLin Gym in the Nutter Center at Wright State University
Why: For FUN, bragging rights and recognition! Same day, same location

Have some great hands-on fun. Each team or individual participant will have up to 20 minutes to complete a 3D-design/3D-print/3D-score challenge. All scores will be posted live. If another team bumps you from first place, come back again, take what you learned the first time and 3D-design/3D-print/3D score again! If you start in the morning you will likely have three opportunities to 3D-design/3D-print/3D-score dependent upon the number of participants.

For more fun between your challenges, watch over 40 local High School and College Xtreme BOTS teams compete in the 9th annual robotics competition. Teams of up to 5 students design and construct remote controlled robots in a competition where sparks (and robot parts) fly to see who is left standing at the end of the day. Learn more about this competition: Or test your flying skills on our Flight Simulator where you experience the thrill of flying a UAV! A $5 donation at the door is appreciated. Xtreme BOTS, Destination:Dayton UAS Challenge and now the ORI RIPPL3D Challenge are all programs of Ohio Robotics Inc, a 501c3 Ohio non-profit promoting STEM learning. 937-474-2845 Walk-ins welcome, but pre-registration will get better times to compete.
