Rutland Takes Top Honors in Third Annual 3D Modeling Event
Barre, VT. – Rutland High School and Rutland Middle School took top honors at the third annual 3D Vermont Modeling Event on March 24, 2017.
The high school team claimed first place at the high school level with their models of historic structures within Chittenden, Vermont, including an iconic power station along Route 7. Windsor High School placed second in the high school category with their model of the Cox House, built by famed architect Benjamin Asher.
In the middle school category, Rutland Middle School claimed first place with their rendering of the historic Paramount Theater, and Williston Central School took the second slot with their model of the Giles Chittenden house.
The annual competition amongst Vermont schools challenges students to create digital 3D-printed models of historic town buildings and study the history and background of both the buildings and the towns.
“Not only do these projects foster a stronger sense of community value and identity, they leave our young Vermonters with a new set of skills that, if they choose, they can immediately apply in a career context,” said Secretary of Education Rebecca Holcombe.
