2022 SME Education Foundation Annual Report

Page 1


20 22

Manufacturing is essential to a robust economy and ensuring global competitiveness. At the SME Education Foundation, we strive to inspire, prepare and support the next generation of manufacturing and engineering talent, and provide manufacturers with the educated workforce they need. Our programs expose high school students across the country to cutting-edge manufacturing technologies, provide customized training and certifications on relevant manufacturing processes, and subsidize post-secondary educational pursuits.

In 2022, the Foundation continued its upward trajectory by expanding its reach and undertaking various tactics to increase impact.

Highlights from the year include the Foundation’s participation in the IMTS Smartforce Student Summit, where we showcased additive manufacturing and virtual reality technologies to 11,000 students. Through SME PRIME® (Partnership Response in Manufacturing Education), we commenced development of 18 new manufacturing programs at high schools in three states, utilizing public and private funds as well as funding from SME. In total, more than $4 million was distributed to the SME PRIME school network in 2022, a record. Lastly, our student scholarship program experienced another banner year, recruiting the greatest number of applicants and awarding the largest number of scholarships in the Foundation’s history.

Perhaps most importantly, the diversity of the Foundation’s student population continues to improve. In 2022, we experienced a record number of female and/or minority scholarship applicants, and made a record number of awards to minority students. As an expansion of our diversity, equity and inclusion initiative — and our efforts to increase impact — we also implemented a new need-based criterion on a significant portion of our available scholarship funding and transitioned many such programs from one-time awards to multi-year renewing awards.

The future of the SME Education Foundation is bright. The enhancements of the past several years have positioned us well to scale our influence in 2023 and beyond. On behalf of SME, the SME Education Foundation Board of Directors, and Foundation staff, we thank the growing number of organizations that partner with us to strengthen manufacturing and inspire, prepare and support the next generation. We value and appreciate your commitment and look forward to continuing our important work with you.



The SME Education Foundation inspires, prepares and supports the next generation of manufacturing and engineering talent in its role as the philanthropic arm of SME — an internationally recognized nonprofit organization that promotes manufacturing technology and develops a skilled workforce.

“I think these [SkillsUSA] contests are a great experience. Contestants were all assigned the same task, yet they all had different ideas and outcomes. It was great seeing the contestants talk about other teams’ ideas and how they could change theirs to be better if they could do it again. These contests definitely help to shape future generations and open their eyes to the bigger picture.”

Judge, SkillsUSA Additive Manufacturing Competition

“[The RAPID + TCT Student Summit] opened students’ minds on the impact of 3D printing in various industries. The game was a great touch to keep them focused, especially since there was a big prize involved — the 3D printer. We hope to attend this opportunity again with even more students!”

Educator, Center Line High School, Center Line, Michigan



Nearly 400 high school students from 16 schools attended the RAPID + TCT Bright Minds Student Summit — featuring a student-friendly Technology Playground — over two days at North America’s largest additive manufacturing event.

At the Technology Playground, students engaged with representatives of 13 companies, learning about technology and career opportunities from:

Students participated in an expansive, guided show-floor tour — featuring the newest 3D technologies from additive manufacturing exhibitors — and heard from a keynote speaker from Honeywell. They also took part in an SME Gamification challenge that required students to walk the show floor, engaging with preselected companies and their staffs to earn points.

High School Senior Gathers Information and Ideas at Student Summit

Darius Carson, an 18-year-old senior at Center Line High School in Michigan, was able to explore the world of manufacturing at the 2022 Bright Minds Student Summit, held during RAPID + TCT — North America’s largest additive manufacturing event — at Huntington Place in Detroit. Not only did he pick up invaluable information and ideas about new technology and career opportunities, he was one of two students who won a MakerBot SKETCH 3D printer — provided by the SME Education Foundation — by engaging in a game app at the event.

Attending the summit on a class field trip, Carson was fascinated by the additive manufacturing products on display. He says his favorite part was walking around and talking to exhibitors. “I loved it,” he says. “I got information about 3D printers and resin printers and all those types of things that I don’t normally see or use on a daily basis. Once I started talking to people, it really opened me up.”

An integral part of his experience was viewing hightech manufacturing demonstrations. “Building things is something I’ve been involved with since I was a child,” Carson says. “My dad worked for Comcast and he showed me how to build computers at a young age. I built my first computer when I was 11, full hands-on, no help. That was initially the start of it, and then I got into programming.”

With the ultimate goal of becoming a data scientist or cybersecurity expert, Carson plans to attend Macomb Community College for two years. After that, he’d like to transfer to Maryland’s Morgan State University due to its strong robotics training programs, proximity to family members, and status as a historically black university.

Until then, he’s focusing on his high school studies, working part-time to save money for college, and enjoying his new printer. “I’ve been making so many things,” he says.

I got information about 3D printers and resin printers and all those types of things that I don’t normally see or use on a daily basis. Once I started talking to people, it really opened me up.”


In 2022, 70 high school and post-secondary students from 28 states competed in the SkillsUSA Additive Manufacturing Competition — created by SME and Stratasys in 2013 — at the 58th annual SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference.

The competition’s supporting partners were:

The additive manufacturing competition attracts and introduces the younger generation to emerging technologies, and provides them with real-world, hands-on experience that they can apply to commercial products.

The focus of the annual competition ranges from designing objects that help streamline processes within a factory setting to solving real-life medical problems. In 2022, students were challenged to design a 3D-printed enclosure that would house three key components, including a circuit board, a small motor and a fan. More than 300 parts were printed during the competition, all on Stratasys 3D printers.

The winners of the competition were awarded scholarships; one-year subscriptions and memberships for Tooling U-SME and SME, respectively; RAPID + TCT full-conference passes; and professional-grade Sketch 3D printers.

CALEB ARENA SME PRIME High School Education Gives Manufacturing Student Head Start at Georgia Tech

Caleb Arena was a junior when his high school — Pine Bush High School in New York — became part of the SME Education Foundation’s PRIME program in 2019. It had a profound impact on the remainder of his time in high school, his transition to college and his still-evolving career pathway.

Arena’s high school experience stimulated his interest in manufacturing so much that he decided to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, more commonly known as Georgia Tech, where he’s now a sophomore. “It had programs and clubs I was really interested in, and it was the best opportunity as far as learning environment and career path,” he says.


Although Georgia Tech was one of the most expensive schools he was accepted into, Arena received financial help in the form of the 2021-22 SME Education Foundation PRIME Educational Scholarship. “I had that scholarship for the first year, and it definitely helped,” he says.

One of the Georgia Tech clubs Arena was interested in, and subsequently joined, was GT Motorsports — a Formula SAE club that designs and builds Formula One-style cars. Being part of the racing club, where he primarily helps out with welding and milling, has helped Arena zero in a little more on his future career aspirations. “I’ve become very close to the idea of working in either automotive design or automotive manufacturing, or if possible to go into motorsports,” he says. Wherever he ends up, Arena credits his experience at an SME PRIME high school with getting him started on the right career track. “I was always into engineering-style stuff, but in high school I started to narrow down what I really liked.”

Being from a PRIME school was a huge influence, and the seniors-only engineering class that we had was my introduction to manufacturing. I learned so much about manufacturing processes, from injection molding and 3D printing to water jetting and laser cutting — all sorts of different methods. So that was a huge influence in my figuring out that manufacturing was going to be very interesting.”

Professional Development

Professional development plays a key part in the success of an SME PRIME program. Even with the best equipment, success isn’t certain unless the instructors understand the equipment and feel comfortable teaching on it.

With that in mind, professional development was a key focus of SME PRIME in 2022, and the Foundation team was intentional in designing more learning and professional engagement opportunities for PRIME educators.

Working with many of its valued partners, the Foundation offered four days of hosted, in-person orientations to various pieces of manufacturing equipment that make up the PRIME program. SME PRIME educators visited with instructors for Stratasys, Universal Robots and FESTO training systems, in addition to receiving professional development on other classroom equipment like Snap-on precision measurement instrumentation kits and classroom robotics kits.

PRIME Sustainability Fund

Drawing upon a $1 million SME PRIME Sustainability Fund that was established by the Foundation board in 2020, the Foundation granted SME PRIME sustainability awards to 16 schools in 2022. The grants were awarded to seasoned PRIME schools to help maintain their PRIME programs. SME PRIME Sustainability Funds are used by the schools to purchase additional equipment, materials and supplies; enhance curriculum; and underwrite the cost of student engagement-related activities.

“Our students have the opportunity to get certified in PMI and robotics through Starrett and FANUC. These certifications were provided by our relationship with PRIME.”

Educator, Central Columbia High School

In 2022, the SME Education Foundation’s scholarship program continued its record growth, receiving the largest number of scholarship applications in the program’s history. Not only did applications grow in general, the number of applicants and awardees from community colleges — a focus demographic of the Foundation in 2022 — grew significantly.

Foundation scholarship applications from community college students increased by 57% in 2022, while awards to community college students increased by 45%. It was also a banner year for program participation by females and other underrepresented students in manufacturing and engineering education. Collectively, these underrepresented groups applied for SME scholarships in record numbers, and awards to these groups remained strong — doubling and tripling from the historical average. This rise is partly attributable to the Foundation’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiative, launched in 2021; the Irving P. McPhail scholarship fund, created in 2021; and the Foundation’s many new promotional partners.

Scholarship Restructuring

As part of a restructuring effort to increase program impact and help ensure that its scholarships are awarded to students who need them most, the Foundation implemented major enhancements to its Scholarship program in 2022.

Enhancements include:

• Transitioning from one-time awards to renewable multi-year awards. Renewable awards will help build long-term student engagement and relationships.

• Increasing dollar amounts of scholarship awards. Increasing dollars will increase the awards’ impact.

• Introducing needs-based criteria. Presenting awards to the students who need them most will make the awards more meaningful.

In addition to assisting with long-term student engagement and increasing impact, these changes will help track student outcomes and performance, and help cultivate the next generation of SME leaders.

Romeo High School

Romeo, Michigan

I fell in love with the robotics club really quick. There were a lot of things I had to learn, but once I started I realized that it’s a very rewarding field.”

SME Scholarship Helps Michigan Student Attend School in ‘Favorite Place Ever’

Winning the 2022 SME Education Foundation Family Scholarship — for $10,000 a year over four years — helped Carsyn Boggio realize her dream of attending Michigan Technological University in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (U.P.).

“It made coming up here easier,” says Boggio, 18, who graduated from Romeo High School in suburban Detroit and is now majoring in mechanical engineering at Michigan Tech. “I was going to come up here no matter what, but I felt a lot better having that behind me. It’s been a little motivator in the back of my mind, like, ‘there’s people paying for you to be here, you have to do well now.’ And I think that’s good.”

Boggio’s passion for the U.P. was stoked during frequent childhood camping trips to the area. “My dad grew up in the U.P., and it’s my favorite place ever,” she says. “Whenever we came up here I was so excited, and when I got into engineering Michigan Tech was a no-brainer for me. It was like, this is a combination of everything I love.”

Boggio initially became interested in an engineering career when she joined the robotics club in her sophomore year of high school. “I fell in love with it really quick,” she says. “There were a lot of things I had to learn, but once I started I realized that it’s a very rewarding field.”

Once Boggio’s interest in engineering was apparent, her father — a teacher at her high school, which is an SME PRIME school — encouraged her to apply for an SME scholarship. “There were two essays, I had to do two videos, and then I had a final in-person interview,” she recalls, adding that the scholarship committee allowed her to participate in the interview online since she was attending the FIRST robotics championship in Houston at the time.

As far as her future plans, Boggio says, “I don’t really have a specific career I’m dead set on. I’m still trying to learn as much as I can, make as many connections as I can, and see where my education takes me.” With the help of her SME scholarship, Boggio is positioned to do just that.


SME Directors Scholarship

Every year, the SME Education Foundation awards up to three prestigious SME Directors Scholarships to undergraduate manufacturing students who are members of student or professional chapters of SME. It is funded by SME board members, the SME Education Foundation, and SME past presidents. Each year, the Directors Scholarship honors an SME or Foundation board member who has exhibited exemplary leadership.

In 2022, the Directors Scholarship honored Brian Ruestow, LSME, who served on the Foundation’s board of directors in various capacities — including director, vice president and president — from 2009 to 2020. A member of SME since 1975, Ruestow received the Outstanding Manufacturing Engineer Award in 1986 and the Joseph A. Siegel Award in 2009. In addition, he has served on the Foundation’s Scholarship Policy and Review Committee for more than 30 years. Ruestow is employed as sales director for the Americas at Norton Pulpstones Inc.

In Ruestow’s name, Directors Scholarships were awarded to three students in 2022.
