Form Design Studio will launch 3D Modeling program in Newark’s North Ward

Express Newark Partner, The Form Design Studio will take part in an initiative to bring digital literacy and IT skills to Newark residents who live in the North Ward.

Tech World is a collaboration of various local stakeholders responding to the White House’s bold multi-sector initiative and call to action to up-skill Americans in digital literacy.

This broadens the current efforts of Mayor Baraka’s Office to empower Newark residents to meet the talent needs of local businesses.

Form Design Studio Director, Professor Keary Rosen, is developing a 3D modeling and printing program that will include introductory, intermediate as well as advance 3D modeling.  His program will then be used as the template for other Tech World locations around the country.

The 3D modeling and printing program we are developing is meant to activate creativity, as well as introduce practical skill sets that can be applied in the job market.

The end goal is to connect Newark youths and other members of Newark communities with free technical resources.  The students who complete the program will receive a Rutgers University-Newark certificate of completion.
