A few years back when I first read about 3D printing, I just could wrap my mind around the concept. How could an ordinary person hit a button and a three-dimensional object would be produced? Knowing I was no expert, I enlisted the help of Mr. Eckert.
After a lot of discussions on what students could produce we decided on iPod stands in 2015. These stands were produced for pediatric patients who received iPods from the Carolyn Sullivan Foundation. Each design was unique and were presented to Montefiore Children’s hospital. In 2016, students designed paddle boats for the Dutchmen Dual. These experiences brought great learning experiences in the design process.
