I just had to share this, because I think it is an absolutely AMAZING accomplishment - Way to go Jason!
- Congrats Jason
Good job, kid
Congrats Jason. WTG!
I judge skills Canada competition for SWx each year and I find that highschool students are just as amazing as some university students.
I love seeing this trend!
The knowledge might be diff. but the brain is still the same !!!
Congrats to Jason for being the youngest CSWE in US.
Our Canadian Chris Rudnicki was also 16 in April 2012, when he got his CSWE.
Absolutely awesome stuff there Jason!
VIP trip to SWW2018 ?????
Kind of a neat update to this story -
First, let me start by saying that I had NO IDEA who this Jason guy was a week ago.
I was scrolling through twitter, and I saw a tweet from Suchit Jain about the story in the Miami Herald.
Since this is quite an accomplishment, I wanted to share it with everyone here (hence this thread.)
The fantastic response from the community prompted me to send an email to the person that wrote the story for the Miami Herald, and let her know that her story has extended way beyond the Miami area - Dave Bear chimed in from the other side of the globe!
(I included a link to this thread so that she could check it out.)
She emailed me to thank me for the feedback, and then she re-tweeted one of my tweets about the story.
This morning Jason started following me on Twitter.
Really makes you appreciate the SOLIDWORKS community!
Great initiative, Todd!
Now I want to find out more about Chris Rudnicki!

I cannot seem to locate the article I wrote when he got his CSWE in April 2012.
Wow - CSWE only a year after getting his CSWP!
That is awesome!

There are some really fantastic kids out there. I have been fortunate to work directly with some of them.
Guess what... I learned as much form them as they learned from me.
There is another example of a super bright kid: Aidan Aird. When he was 13, he started taking all the SOLIDWORKS courses available, including FEA and CFD.
He is doing now fantastic work involving kids in STEM programs. Take a look of what he started:
developing innovations | To inspire, celebrate and promote #STEM learners
I just learned that he was recognized as a 2017 Schulich Leader at the University of Toronto, winning $100,000 in scholarship funding.

This is absolutely amazing - We need to get Marie Planchard in touch with some of these incredible kids!

Not sure if Canada is on Marie Planchard's map.
I just emailed her - I think she would want to know about some of this, even if it isn't part of her area.

Todd, you deserve the Michelle Pillers Community Award this year. Too bad the users could not vote for the winner!
Wow, props to you Jason ...
Wish I was that driven early on. That hindsight is a killer.
Well done Jason!
I consider myself so fortunate that our SOLIDWORKS user community supports students like Jason. One of the things I love about SOLIDWORKS is that our users share and support great accomplishments by students. These students are the next generation of SOLIDWORKS customers and user group leaders.
