2014 Cardboard Challenge
Die Cut Technologies, in partnership with Adams 12 Five Star Schools, the Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Alliance (CAMA) and the Adams County Education Consortium (ACEC), recently co-sponsored the 2014 Cardboard Challenge.
Nurturing Critical Thinking Skills
The Cardboard Challenge provided students at the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) schools in Adams County with a unique opportunity to challenge their critical thinking skills that are currently being nurtured and developed through the STEM program. Over the course of the spring semester, students were tasked with designing and building cardboard creations. These creations were then presented for competition at the STEM launch school. We are proud to have contributed to this event in two ways: by helping judge the competition and by donating a portion of the prize money awarded to the winners.
Manufacturing The Future
Die Cut Technologies is dedicated to Colorado’s highly-trained manufacturing workforce of tomorrow, which we believe is vital in propelling our state to the forefront of a rapidly-changing global economy. According to a press release from CAMA, “[Our] members understand that to continue to grow manufacturing in Colorado, we absolutely must connect our young people to the promising career paths offered by manufacturing.” We wholeheartedly agree, and through future community outreach initiatives, partnerships and sponsorships, we hope to further inspire creativity and critical thinking in Colorado students.
