It’s Friday, which means that it is time for your weekly roundup of 3D printing and STEM education news! The current state of STEM education made news this week. I think we all agree that there needs to be a stronger STEM presence in our schools, we need to set a consistent plan and ask for continued community support of these initiatives. 3D printing was also making waves with the premiere of James Bond (yes 3D printing assisted in the blockbuster hit) and a lot of people were very interested in the 3D printing booth that recently opened in Japan.
