The winners of this year’s Extreme Redesign Challenge have been announced by Dimension Printing. The annual contest permits students from several levels to enter their designs in five categories: College Engineering; Art and Architecture; Middle School/High School Engineering; Puzzle and Game Design; Building or Bridge Redesign. 
This year’s winners include: 
  • College Engineering: Jeremy Prince of Tennessee, who designed a “prone stander”, a device enabling children with cerebral palsy to assist in developing muscles. 
  • Art and Architecture: Dov Feinmesser & Aaron Hendershott of Toronto, who produced a children’s chair that has several different operating modes. 
  • Middle/High School Engineering: Elliot Wilm of Illinois designed a doorstop. But it’s a very special doorstop that is embedded within the door itself, providing many advantages. 
  • Building or Bridge Redesign: Jeevan Farias of New Jersey, who redesigned the Beijing National Stadium to reduce the amount of electricity required and add clean energy sources such as wind turbines. 
  • Puzzle or Game Design: Kyle Wilkinson of Indiana, who made a kind of spherical Rubik’s cube, complete with a hidden chamber. 
Congratulations to all the winners!
