Last week, the 3D Lab was invited to Lincoln Elementary School in Wadsworth to talk about 3D printing and how it enables young minds to consider careers in engineering. It was quite a crowd with well over 100 children quietly sitting on the gymnasium floor, fascinated with the 3D printer and full of questions.
The students had so many questions that I couldn’t deliver my full presentation, but that was not a problem! We talked about how 3D printers work, how we use them at Wayne College, and gave students ideas and encouragement to create and invent for themselves. We also talked about the upcoming Wayne County Mini Maker Faire, thankful that Lincoln Elementary was part of last year’s faire. It was a great experience and the children were so polite.
