The students in Dave Patrick’s engineering class have acquired the power to transform the designs in their heads into objects they can hold in the palms of their hands. Patrick said Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School’s new 3D printer is state of the art technology that gives B-R engineering students a big advantage in applying to college and excelling once they get there. “It allows them to do rapid prototyping. When they design something on the computer it allows them to actually make it within hours and look at it and feel it and most importantly answer the question, ‘Does it work?’” Patrick said.
