Peter Jones believes that 3D printing technology will empower students and research. In his eyes, The ability to create, innovate and control the manufacturing process will give rise to the next generation of innovators, designer and entrepreneurs, and this drives his work at PrintME 3D. At PrintME, Peter and his team stand for Myself Empowered, and they want to give the tools for the next generation of pioneers.
3D printing is steadily transforming the world through innovation, speed, localised manufacturing and empowering the creativity of the individual. Where computers and mobile technology changed the world and the landscape within education, 3D printing adds another dimension to learning and gives rise to the next generation of engineers, designers, entrepreneurs, artists and industry innovators. The notion to innovate and excite the classroom, to transform learning processes and to introduce the ability to simplify complex design processes can all be achieved with a 3D printer. Here, I discuss how the concept can be used across the curriculum.
