On a separate but related note, we awarded design contest prizes at the Solid Edge ST4 Event for students, whom we affectionately refer to as Edgelings. Our student design contest runs year round so if you are a student and want to show off your work, submit it here. Here's a look at the winners

Michael's whole family was on hand as he accepted his award. One of our folks caught the moment on film.

Other Happenings in the Solid Edge Academic Community
Kings High School, outside of Cincinnati, OH was awarded a $10,000 grant from MIT to compete at this year's EurekaFest for the InvenTeams program. The team's goal was to design (in Solid Edge) and develop a hydroelectric generator for less than $1,000. The students built the final prototype for less than $500. Special thanks to Siemen's own Paul Caito whose dedication, time and effort to support the program at Kings is much appreciated. You can expect to hear more about this program in the future!
