XYZprinting STEAM, an online curriculum exchange program emphasizing critical thinking and problem-solving skills, continues to enable users to create. Most recently, Kevin Lee, an Aerospace Engineering student at San Diego State University, has made three versions of his quadcopters available for viewing on XYZprinting STEAM.
Coming from one of California’s top research schools, Lee has utilized 3D printing to create four variations of the quadcopter from scratch. In addition to these design projects, Lee also co-founded SDSU’s premiere 3D printing club, 3D4E, which allows students to learn more about the applications of 3D printing. By sharing the designs of his quadcopters on XYZprinting STEAM, he hopes to inspire others to pursue 3D printing and perhaps turn a hobby into a satisfying career.
“I have always been fascinated by military helicopters and I wanted to fly for the Army, but due to health issues I couldn’t complete the application process. So instead of flying helicopters, I learned how to design them.” said Kevin Lee, undergraduate student at SDSU.
Last year, Kevin flew out to the Barnes & Noble headquarters in New York City as a panelist, leading presentations for XYZprinting and sharing the benefits of its STEAM curriculum.
