BBC Article – 3D Printing in Education

Not long ago, I came across a nice article from the BBC News website about 3D printing as it’s being adopted by education. If you didn’t see it the first time it’s worth a read:

BBC News - 3D Printing in the Classroom

From my own experience running technology awareness days for British Academy of Jewellery’s Jewellery Manufacturing Diploma, I can see why educators and ministers would like the idea of bringing these into the classroom. It seems students of all ages respond to the instant gratification aspect of this technology in ways never seen before in any other type of manufacturing.

It does certainly lend credence to my belief that UK manufacturing is due to see a big resurgence of keen and skilled practitioners in the next few years.
