For those of you who were with us in Las Vegas last november, you probably remember that we introduced a new partnership with will.i.am‘s i.am.angel foundation as part of our support for STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics). Enrique Legaspi, Chief of Staff, and Vincent Archer, Director Global Development, i.am.angel foundation, inspired us with their talk “Create, Curate and Share” on how the power tools of today (software, 3D printing…) can help the next generation touch the future.

The I.AM.3DEXPERIENCE intiative is just about that: providing students from underserved communities with the right tools and education so that they can “write, code, imagine, dream and make”, as will.i.am rightly puts it:
Given the feedback from the audience at this 3DEXPERIENCE Customer Forum, we figured out that you were as inspired and enthusiast as we’ve been
This Boyle Heights guy is one seriously gifted orator. This alone makes #3DXforum worth it. So glad to be here.

So what’s next? On January 23rd the i.am.angel Foundation will host its annual TRANS4M benefit concert in Los Angeles, CA. This event, which will be broadcast live on the i.am.angel Foundation website, will publicly kick-off our collaboration. By then, you can support TRANS4M benefit: by donating to the foundation, or by tweeting with us on the #TRANS4M hashtag. And stay tuned!
