We are all unique. Therefore, our medical needs are all unique. The emergence of 3D printing technology has revolutionized the field of assistive technology, inspiring innovative solutions to the everyday challenges of people with disabilities. In this hands-on workshop, students will explore the many ways 3D printing is changing and improving the lives of those with physical limitations and will inspire new approaches to developing assistive objects. Complete with an introduction to 3D printing and modeling, this workshop will challenge students to utilize critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration to design and print an object that could improve someone's life.
