“We are so happy to have Clearwave partner with us to provide the best, most current technology to our students, said Karla Lewis, Associate Dean of Learning Commons at SIC. “We’re striving to give our students the opportunity to experience state of the art virtual reality simulations as well as 3D printing – both of which will help them prepare for their future university studies or the technology they may encounter in the workplace. Clearwave is helping us provide these rich learning experiences to our students, and we are grateful for their sponsorship.”
