SME SPEAKS


In addition, the US Department of Labor has recently funded a grant to the National STEM Consortium (NSC; Ar- nold, MD) to create a one-year community college certificate program for high-demand, mid-skill technical careers, one of which targets composites. South Seattle College (Seattle), in cooperation with the NSC, is designing a Composite Techni- cians Certificate Program to respond to regional industry needs in retraining workers. The curriculum has three major components: lecture material, labs and an online piece containing STEM Bridge material. As part of the grant, the material will be an open education resource (OER), available to other composite programs, nationwide. To learn more about composites manufacturing, I would personally like to invite you to join SME’s Composites Manu- facturing Tech Group. Simply login to sme.org, and under the Membership Details area in your member profile, you should se- lect the PCC Community first and then the tech group second. You can also visit i.sme.org/composites-manufacturing to learn more about the tech group and its activities. We welcome your participation and hope to meet you at our next meeting.

RAPID 2015 Keynotes S


ME’s 2015 RAPID Conference & Exposition, May 18–21, 2015, at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA, will showcase three keynote presentations focused on emerging 3D printing and scanning technologies within the aerospace, medical and overall additive manufac- turing industries. Aaron Kemmer, chief executive officer and co-founder of Made In Space, will kick things off on Tuesday, May 19 as he addresses the latest in aerospace manufactur- ing and how his company is evolving in-space travel with its Zero-G 3D Printer, which recently became the first 3D printer deployed on the International Space Station. Joining Kem- mer as keynote presenters are William Warren, PhD, who helped initiate the field of bioprinting as a program manager at DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), and industry influencer Terry Wohlers, FSME, principal consultant and president, Wohlers Associates Inc. Keynote presentations are complimentary for all conference and expo- sition attendees. To secure your spot at this year’s show, visit xpressreg.net/register/rapd065/start.asp.
