Successful 3D prints in the 2017-18 academic year
Students used the Invention Studio for prototyping
Encouraging a Maker Mindset
With access to 3D printing services and the Invention Studio, Penn State students are able to immerse themselves in what it means to be a maker. Hands-on experience with state-of-the-art technology allows for coursework and projects that develop essential skills – such as critical thinking and collaboration – for success in a rapidly changing professional world. The entire maker process from ideation to completion also demonstrates to students how their ideas can impact the world around them.
From their earliest stages through full realization, ideas go through various iterations and changes. The Invention Studio allows students’ ideas to evolve thanks to rapid prototyping technologies like littleBits, LEGO, Philips HUE, Arduino, Raspberry Pi and more.
We’d be thrilled to talk with you about ideas for a prototyping or 3D printing project!
