C.E.T. No. 2 received a 3D T125 model printer, 16 computers with all their accessories, and software for virtual machining and for tridimensional parametric design, while Los Andes School was given a 3D T125 model printer, another printer, a slide projector, a 1060 RKL laser engraving cutter, and also software for virtual machining and for tridimensional parametric design.
One of the keys of INVAP’s community programs is to promote and intensify technical education. Their main objective is to train students so they can contribute to consolidate a sustainable development model, relate knowledge with productive innovation and reduce technological dependency.
