Happy Friday! Here is your weekly 3D printing and STEM education news roundup! This week it seems that a lot of stories related to 3D printing were about medical uses for the technology and current experimentation. It is pretty amazing to think about how far medical science has come in the past 100 years, and even more exciting to see how technology is able to further it even more. We will definitely keep our eye on the growing relationship between 3D printing and medicine.

Wow what a great week! Most of this week’s news focused around the themes of sustainability and the future of 3D printing.  Take a glance Robert Schouwenburg, Co-Founder of Shapeways, blog about Value Creation in 3D Printing because he highlights some very interesting aspects that many people tend to overlook.

Also, the “3D Print Show London 2012” takes place this weekend and we can’t wait to see all of the cool stuff that people will be sharing from the event! We will share updates with you as we get them on our Facebook and Twitter pages…so be sure to follow us there as well.

The Engineering Education Transformation

September 26, 2012

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela

As an engineering company we are always interested in the advancements of engineering educations from grade school through college. USA Today recently shared an article “Teaching for the Future: Engineers Pursue Big Projects” and in it we get a glimpse into the evolving world of an engineering education. When many of us were in school, the focus was on lectures, hypothetical issues and calculus problems, but today we are starting to see education evolve into hands-on activity and real world solutions. “Taking young engineers out of lecture halls and instead having them practice their profession represents the cutting edge in reshaping the discipline.” (We can’t help but think how this kind of transformation could be carried over into all STEM disciplines.)

“We have done a miserable job, by and large, of explaining just how engineering is essential and can change the world,” says National Academy of Engineering chief Charles Vest. In a nutshell, he says, that helps explain why only about 4.5% of U.S. college graduates are engineers, Vest says, while about 12% are in Europe and 21% are in Asia. “This is an idealistic generation, despite everything going on in the economy, and they want to help people,” Vest says. “We have to get them out of the lecture hall and show them how engineers do just that.”

This past summer, Duke engineering students went to Bolivia to build a 213-foot-long steel pedestrian bridge by hand, to link two impoverished villages long separated by a deep gorge. The Duke engineering program takes their program even further by emphasizing teamwork and entrepreneurship in the curriculum in addition to the hands-on solutions. “We need people who think differently, people who are creative, people who make things, people who can work in teams, not just alone on a computer.”

Our 3D Innovations & 3D Academy team would like to applaud the schools that have seen the need to transform traditional engineering educations to meet the changing needs of students and society.
