Bridget Butler Millsaps, a reporter for 3D Print Magazine, published the following analysis of Polar 3D's acquisition of STEAMtrax.

A WIN FOR 3D EDUCATION: POLAR 3D HAS ACQUIRED STEAMTRAX FROM 3D SYSTEMS

Today when we hear the term STEAM, we think of curriculum by way of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics—and we know this certainly isn’t the same type of learning our parents or grandparents had the privilege of enjoying; however, the jobs that many graduating students will shoot tomorrow for did not exist when our parents and grandparents entered a much different workforce, nearly lacking technology as we know it altogether.

Often involving 3D design and 3D printing, the STEAM angle means forging ahead in offering students of all ages skillsets that will hopefully help them move into extremely fulfilling careers one day. And when we hear of Polar 3D, we think of a company that we know is on a serious mission to put 3D printing in schools, introducing and expanding educational use of the technology and propelling the younger generations ahead both to innovate and ‘think like entrepreneurs.’ So upon hearing that Polar 3D had just acquired STEAMtrax from 3D Systems, we thought it sounded like a bold move and an obvious, logical fit.
