DASI Solutions Hosts 3rd Annual STEM Summit

This Thursday, August 18, DASI Solutions will be hosting their 3rd annual STEM Summit. This event will be taking place at the Lafayette Grande, just across the street from DASI’s Downtown Pontiac Headquarters, at 12:30pm.

The event will kick off with food and networking opportunities. Following those, attendees will then be viewing presentations on both the new edition of SOLIDWORKS Education as well as SOLIDWORKS Simulation tools, presented by two of our in-house SOLIDWORKS certified application engineers. Darin Grosser and Shaun Bentley will showcase new features, capabilities and demonstrations of each product. Like in year’s past, DASI’s STEM Summit will introduce and update attendees on different STEM competitions and initiatives that take place throughout the state each year. Some of the topics to be covered include FIRST Robotics, Formula SAE, SkillsUSA, ASBE Design Challenge and MITES. New this year, there will be special emphasis on Apprenticeship and skilled trades. DASI launched their Industrial Design Technician Apprenticeship Program in 2015, and has paired up with FOCUS: Hope and JAMA in the American Apprenticeship Initiative to received grant funding for any participant or company that qualifies.

This is one of DASI’s favorite events to host; it is a great event that brings business, community and education together in an effort to collaborate and strategize for future success. “Hosting our STEM Summit gives DASI an opportunity to present STEM related topics that could potentially be a catalyst moving forward in the effort to close the skilled trade’s gap that is greatly affecting the engineering and manufacturing workforce today,” said David Darbyshire, Co-Owner of DASI Solutions.
