Popular 3D Printing & STEM Education News (May 27th – May 31st)

Your weekly news roundup has arrived! This week there was a major buzz around the fact that the space station will be getting a 3D printer of its own in 2014. Shapeways has also developed a “squeezable” plastic 3D printing material–this could enhance prototyping capabilities even further in the near future. In the world of STEM, Lego is also working to make tinkering “cool” again for children and they have developed a very impressive R&D lab (How Lego Is Constructing the Next Generation of Engineers).

We highly suggest that you check out the  Wohler’s Associates and McKinsey reports related to 3D printing that were recently released. Both reports give some great information as to the current state of the industry and future economic and growth predictions.
