Virginia Tech hosting debut student competition to design 3-D printed aircraft, ground vehicles

Virginia Tech will play host to a first-time, university-wide competition for students to deign on-demand, remote-controlled 3-D printed aircraft and ground vehicles.

Up for grabs in the Spring 2014 Additive Manufacturing Grand Challenge that launches March 4: $15,000 in cash prizes, including $3,000 for first prize in each of the air and ground vehicle competitions, and $250 for each team that creates a functional vehicle.

Undergraduate and graduate students, individually or in groups, are invited to participate from across the university, no matter their course of study.
