Three Schools Take Top Honors in 2nd Annual 3D Modeling Event
BARRE - Three Vermont schools, two high schools and a middle school, took top honors in the 2nd annual 3D Vermont Modeling Event last Friday, March 25. Windsor High School, holding its winning title from last year, took the top slot as First Prize winner in the High School category. Their models included the Windsor Prison building and surrounding structures. Enosburg High School placed 2nd in the High School category with their model of the Spavin Cure Building, a prominent historic factory structure in downtown Enosburg. The Middle school winning team was Castleton Village School with their depiction of the Castleton Medical College.
3D Vermont is a now annual competition amongst 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 36 school teams have been working since October of 2015 to create the structures in SketchUP, a computer drafting and modeling software. Students then created the 3D structures on locally owned 3D printers. More than 20 of those teams finished their models and joined the competition on Friday.
