Students, parents and educators from Hampton City Schools’ Maritime Academy learned about integrated Digital Shipbuilding and Repair through interactive and engaging workshop rotations on May 11th!
The Digital Shipbuilding STEMpowerment workshop at ODU-VMASC fosters problem based learning/inquiry paradigms through navigation of hands-on manufacturing experiences and engineering design processes. The workshop empowers innovative, industry practices within the digital age utilizing real time data on the digital thread based on 3D design, modeling, printing, manufacturing, and virtual reality!
