Central Carolina Technical College recently donated a new 3-D printer to Alice Drive Elementary School's STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) lab as part of Partners in Education between the two schools.
The Partners in Education initiative was started by the Greater Sumter Chamber of Commerce and Sumter School District with a goal of partnering businesses and organizations with one or more of the 26 schools in Sumter County.
CCTC is an official Partner in Education with ADES and Alice Drive Middle School.
ADE teacher Lisa Jackson's fourth-grade class visited the STEM lab to see how the new 3-D printer works. Department Chairman for Engineering Design Technology David Tuders and Engineering Design Technology student Keenan Miller unboxed and assembled the printer.
Miller, who is currently teaching an eight-week AutoCAD class at ADM, will graduate in May with an Associate Degree in Engineering Design Technology and start working at CCTC as an adjunct instructor in the same program. Tuders and Miller are planning an abbreviated four-week AutoCAD course to teach students at ADE.
