STEM and 3D Printers

By Tech Powered Dad | May 16, 2012

I’ll be the first to say, this is a bit of a random post. I just wanted to show all of you one of the more unusual exhibits I had the opportunity to check out at the T3 conference in Chicago a couple of months back. It was a 3D printer from a company called Stratasys. You may never have even heard of a 3D printer, but it’s pretty much what it’s name indicates. Rather than printing on the surface of paper, it “prints” a solid object in 3 dimensions. This allows production of objects that would be impossible to create a die and cast method.

The representative from Stratasys explained they do have an interest in education because there is a lot of STEM interest in 3D printers. The video says as much as a 1000 words that I could say about 3D printing, so check it out below.

STEM careers are the future. Will you be ready?
