Vermont Students to Compete in 2nd Annual 3D Modeling Event

21 March 2016

BARRE, VT – The Vermont Agency of Education, in partnership with a number of other state level organizations, announces the second annual 3D Vermont Architecture and History Olympiad, which will take place on Friday, March 25, in Judd Hall at Vermont Technical College in Randolph, VT from 8:00AM-1:30 PM.

3D Vermont is an annual competition between Vermont schools to create digital 3D-printed models of historic town buildings and study the history and background of the buildings and towns at the same time. Students from 30 schools have been working since October of 2015 to create the structures in SketchUP, a computer drafting and modeling software, and then creating the 3D structures on locally owned 3D printers. Students have researched the buildings and towns and will present their buildings and findings on Friday at the statewide competition in Randolph.

“This project bridges the gap between technology and history, while giving students a sense of place,” said Mike Hathorn, founder of 3D Vermont and lead instructor on the project
