Happy Friday! As we do every week, here is your weekly 3D printing and STEM education news update! We have scoured the internet’s blogosphere and news resources to bring you the most talked about news. As you will see, President Obama’s 2014 budget in regards to STEM education was a hot topic of conversation. Also, if you are short on time we recommend that you check out Exploring 7 materials with 3D printing and see what some materials of the future look like — pretty cool!
Today and tomorrow (April 19th & 20th) we are participating in the 4th Annual Hawaii STEM Conference and will share pictures from the event soon!
