GE AEP September Competition


The September competition for the GE Additive Education Program is Find a Way. Students will design a maze for a 3mm ball bearing and upload it to the Polar Cloud to enter.

For K-8 Students: Design an amazing 3D maze

Design the trickiest maze possible, but remember there needs to be at least one way out of the maze!

For 9-12 Students: Design a functional, multi-layer 3D printed maze

The maze needs to allow a 3mm metal ball to travel through from start to finish and the maze must have at least 2 levels.

Once your maze design is complete, upload it to the Polar Cloud and tag the object with #mazecomp2018. That’s it!

We’ll be printing the winning mazes as BIG as we can, and sending them to your school!
