Siemens Provides Software Grant to Florida Engineering Academy High School

Siemens PLM Software and SME Education Foundation awarded a software grant valued at $538,300 to the Academy of Engineering at River Ridge High School in New Port Richey, Fl.

The software grant includes free center-based training and free upgrades for 30 seats of Solid Edge software which combines the speed and flexibility of direct modeling with the precise control of dimension driven design.

The Academy of Engineering partners with Project Lead The Way, a national non-profit organization that assists in implementing the Academy curriculum, that emphasize hands-on experience in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education.

“Our students understand the competitive nature of today’s economy and are excited about having access to what is considered the industry standard for CAD software,” said Dave Hoffman, the lead instructor at the Academy of Engineering. “We now have the ability to align our students’ base of knowledge with the rapidly changing technologies, as they pursue apprenticeships and other school-to-work opportunities.”
