Students from three local Archdiocese schools worked in groups to design 3D-printed solutions that help solve a local, national or global problem. The teams gathered at the LEAP Collaboratory May 9 to present their innovative ideas, including their ideation process and iteration cycles, before their peers and a panel of judges.

Four awards were given: the Collaboration Award, the 3D Print Master Award, the Social Impact Award, and the Innovator Award. The winners of the Innovator Award took home the big prize – a 3D printer!

LEAP was thrilled to host the students and witness the culmination of a school-based project with real-world implications. Congratulations to all who participated!
