3D - PROTOTYPING LAB

Taking the bold product ideas of independent inventors with limited resources and turning them into marketable solutions requires effective and affordable service provider resources. The CIO 3D PROTOTYPING LAB provides hands-on staff support to inventors who have a product idea but lack the technical expertise to create a CAD (Computer Assisted Design) product design, 3D Printed Prototype or 3D Product Animation.  The 3D PROTOTYPING LAB will provide inventors (Adults, Youth & VETS) with the opportunity to design, develop and test their prototypes. Your tax deductible donation will help to provide inventors with Proof-of-Concept designs and provide youth with workforce development opportunities as they assist staff with short manufacturing product runs for sale on CIO’s 2021 Ecommerce Platform.

YOUNG INVENTOR ENTREPRENEURS PROGRAM

As a supporter of the CIO’s Young Inventor Entrepreneurs Program (YiEP), you will be helping gifted young minds with a passion for STEM, who often have to give up their dream for something a little easier to afford. What if the amazing technologies and projects of the future were created by a student that was given a helping hand somewhere along the way?  Your tax deductible donation will help CIO provide the PC notebooks and equipment kits needed to teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills and fund fields.
