Seventeen high school students from Camden County came to the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center to present their innovative design projects inspired by the world of sports and the life of the Hall of Fame catcher to a panel of expert judges. The day was the culmination of a month-long summer program held at Camden County College during which the students learned to use Solid Edge® software, a state-of-the-art computer-aided design program (CAD) created by Siemens PLM Software. Challenge participants implemented the software to design 3D prototypes that addressed real-world problems from the world of sports. Prototypes were later printed on a 3D printer.
The students began the day participating in the Museum’s STEM programs, making use of PITCH, the Museum’s new interactive installation, and other radar technology to learn about physics and math.
