How can we make our oceans healthier? How can we use new technologies to solve real world problems? Could 3D printing be the answer? 3D printing has been used to develop products and processes. Such products range from objects for sale, fun, or decoration. You may have seen larger projects where 3D printing has been used to print houses. To learn how we can do this, we will explore how 3D printing can be used to develop solutions to reduce the amount of plastics in our oceans, as well as how to educate and engage the public about these solutions. You will then apply these skills to develop 3D printed solutions for other real-world problems.
Students do not need to have experience with 3D printing or design for this course.
