3-D Printing by Dr. Lakshmi Prayaga, University of West Florida

February 20, 2016

Dr. Lakshmi Prayaga of the University of West Florida presented '3-D Printing' for February’s Science Saturday. Attendees learned how to use 3-D printing software to design 3-D objects. Each child was able to design and print two objects using a lap-top computer. The first object helped students to practice using the software. The second object was a rocket ship, for which students had some direction and also some creative freedom. Volunteers from Pensacola High School, East Hill Christian High School, and UWF assisted. This Science Saturday was sponsored by the Kugelman Foundation.
