3D printing is a new way of making things. It can make things in plastic and metal, just like most things are made, but what makes it really cool is that it makes physical 3D objects from what you design on a computer. Just like when you use Word or Google Docs to write a report and then get a physical copy on paper through a document printer, 3D printers create a physical 3D object from what you make.
Registration required. $12 per person. OPEN to ALL. Space is limited. Middle and high school students welcome.
Featured Speaker: Jim Jordan, University of Missouri - St. Louis
