High-Tech Collaboration For Adventure Sports Innovation And The Chattanooga STEM School

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

Ken Kranz, FabLab teacher and Robotics Team coach of the STEM School, Chattanooga, and 15 students have recently partnered with Adventure Sports Innovation on a project to help bring innovative sports to the area.

Several student groups chose the ASI projects, and have begun working on fabricating ramps, obstacles, and course features to support ASI’s advanced training programs for personal transport devices, and working with 360 degree and drone cameras to develop and produce high-quality videos that showcase their products in use in the Chattanooga area.

"For us, this is a perfect partnership,” said Mr. Kranz. “There’s no better way to develop the innovators and entrepreneurs of tomorrow than having them work with real businesses to solve real problems.  Working with ASI provides a fun way for our students to learn important skills and maybe even start them down a path to a future they never considered.”

A primary mission of the STEM School is utilizing collaboration and innovation skills.  These projects give students the opportunity to learn, practice and showcase their skills in a real-world environment, with tangible value to a local business.

"We're really excited to have the opportunity to work with Mr. Kranz and the FabLab team at the STEM school,” said Patrick Molloy, co-founder of ASI.  “As a start-up company with many innovative products, ideas and concepts to introduce to Chattanooga, we are very open to getting fresh ideas. This seems like an ideal group of young talented people to help us with our mission."

This collaboration is also a prime example of the mission statement for ASI-- to pioneer new technology for outdoor experiences, enabling our community to explore and experience recent inventions and innovations in a fun and safe environment. Follow the ASI social media pages on Facebook and Instagram for photos and updates on this project.
