Here is your weekly 3D printing and STEM education new roundup! There were some very popular 3D printing news articles this week, but the one that is still at the front of everyone’s mind is that of a TED talk presented by a MIT professor that introduced us to yet another innovative manufacturing process, 4D printing. This TED presentation has the internet buzzing with articles about the possibilities of 4D printing and articles trying to explain exactly what this “next big thing” means. As always, we look forward to seeing the growth of 4D printing and how it might one day impact our lives.
