Medford, Ore.– Students at South Medford High School are getting hands on experience in cutting edge technology. Thanks to Chevron’s Fuel Your Schools campaign, the digital technology and robotics program at South Medford High School is adding a new top of the line 3D scanner to their lab.
Tuesday morning under the watch of community dignitaries including Representative Sal Esquivel and Jackson County Commissioner Colleen Roberts, students learned how the new scanner works and the opportunities it can present.
“We are getting them experiences with the technology that’s hopefully going to get them excited about furthering it,” says teacher Wade Kadrmas.
The scanner will be programmed to work with the classroom’s pre-existing 3D printer providing un-ending learning opportunities.
