Huntsville City Schools makes national spotlight with manufacturing progam


A national tech magazine has recognized Huntsville City Schools for their advanced manufacturing program.

EdTech Magazine’s “Resurgence of 3D Printers in Modern Learning Environments” highlights the collaboration of Huntsville City Schools with Auburn University and the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center (formerly known as AMRDEC).

The magazine calls it “one of the most unique partnerships” in education. The article noted how students can “work on real-world projects and participate in problem-solving and research.”

Huntsville City Schools became the first K-12 school district in the nation to join into a partnership with Auburn University’s National Center for Addative Manufacturing Excellence (NCAME) alongside the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center to further the education and workforce development in additive manufacturing. 

The program was launched back in October 2018 with a signing ceremony in the Jemison High Advanced Manufacturing Facility. Huntsville City Schools says the partnership will work to further student interest in STEM fields in Huntsville City Schools and provide a high quantity and caliber of talented graduates.
