Extreme Redesign 2018 Announced

Chances are if you were to give your savvy students a product to critique they would quickly assess it and think “I can make this better”, and they’d probably be right! Why not harness that “making” enthusiasm into an engineering design learning opportunity?


Extreme Redesign is a global quest sponsored by Stratasys and GrabCAD that challenges students to invent, innovate or improve something by re-engineering it to be printed in 3D.


Categories in engineering, art, architecture and jewelry are open to all secondary and post-secondary students. All enrires must be submitted via STL files through the official GrabCAD portal by February 28, 2018. For more details or to register click here.


Past area secondary winning projects include:

·       Underwater Hotel – Fairfield Ludlowe HS, CT

·       HUNCH 2015 Zero-Gravity Scale – Tri-County Regional, MA

·       Zero-Gravity Mixer – Tri-County Regional, MA


AET Labs is pleased to announce we will once again be hosting our New England Extreme Redesign Semi-Finals & Digital Fabrication Showcase at WPI in May*. Stay tuned for a “save the date” announcement and further details coming inJanuary!


*Although we do not require formal entry submissions for our regional competition it is required for advancement in the global portion of the challenge and therefore strongly encouraged.
