Matterport, a leading 3D scanning and visualization technology company, has generously donated three of their Pro2 scanners to Secured My School (SMS), a nonprofit organization that aims to harden soft targets and foster a sense of safety in schools. The partnership between these two organizations will empower high school students to learn about 3D technology and its real-world applications, while also playing an integral role in securing their own school.
Matterport's donation of three Pro2 scanners to SMS has opened up new possibilities for securing schools and engaging students. SMS was chosen from a pool of applicants by Matterport, highlighting the organization's commitment to supporting projects that have a positive social impact. By selecting SMS, Matterport recognized the importance of empowering marginalized and vulnerable communities.
SMS, in collaboration with Digital Twin Imaging, has developed a curriculum designed to teach high school students about 3D scanning technology, its applications, and its relevance in today's world. Students will learn how to operate the Pro2 scanners, edit the 3D models, and apply this technology to secure their own school.
One of the unique aspects of this program is that the students themselves will play a vital role in securing their school. At the conclusion of the course, students will use the Pro2 scanner to create a 3D model of their school, identifying vulnerabilities and developing strategies to address them. This practical application of technology will provide a hands-on, real-world experience that empowers the students and puts them at the forefront of securing their own environment.
The partnership between SMS and Matterport is a significant step in empowering students and securing soft targets. By donating Pro2 scanners and providing a curriculum to educate students about 3D technology, Matterport is demonstrating its commitment to supporting marginalized and vulnerable populations. The students involved in this program will learn invaluable skills, gain practical experience, and play a critical role in securing their own school. This initiative serves as a testament to the power of technology and its capacity to drive change, not just for security, but for social equity as well.
