3D Printer at COSI

Today we got COSI's first MakerBot Replicator 2 3D Printer! COSI's Electronic Engineer, Mike Schoenborn, and I were the lucky ones who got to start it up - much easier than I expected. We've already printed our first test object, "Mr. Jaws." I can't wait to use the printer this summer with our new Maker programs. A huge thanks to Cognizant's Making the Future education initiative for making this possible! COSI was chosen as one of 20 sites for the Making the Future Summer Program in 2013. Please come design, make and play this summer at COSI.
