Jerry Castanos (Founder, 3D Heights Printing Shop) partnered with The Community Corps to Demonstrate 3D Printing to NYC High School Students
“I think it’s incredibly important to get students out of the classroom. There’s a huge boom of technology and there has always been a lot of innovation in NYC and for the kids to see it hands-on gives them an idea of what they’re studying for. Lots of times the kids might not see the purpose of it and showing them firsthand might give them the proper motivation.”
