For years, there's been a demand for us to teach CNC. With Origin, multiple students can be working at the same time.

STEM Coach, Laing Middle School of Science and Technology

With Origin, the process is truly hands-on. Nothing happens without the individual having their hands on the machine, and guiding it. And in terms of student engagement, that's the gold standard.

Coordinator of STEM & Digital Learning, Rockwood School District

Origin highlights the skills that we're trying to develop in our students to get them ready for post-secondary life, and to work with industry standards from companies looking to hire.
