InSciTE 3D Printing @ Cameron Library

No comments :
Stop by Cameron Library to see the inventive 3D models display, InSciTE 3D Printing, featuring SCI 151 students' 3D printed works.

Co-taught by Michelle Spila and Mike Kowalski, SCI 151: Scientific Inquiry & Data Analysis is part of the Faculty of Science's Interdisciplinary Science Threshold Experience (InSciTE), offering a new way for Science students to complete their first year of University.

Students were tasked with finding and printing a 3D model that represents a scientific theory or notion, employing 3D printing services in the Shack and Cameron Library.

Students not only exhibited great creativity, printing  everything from a miniature Tombstone of Archimedes to Leonardo da Vinci's Self-Supporting Bridge, to  Phylogenetic Tree pendants and a large customizable DNA Model, they learned a great deal about the science behind their objects, and how to formally communicate scientific theory.

Students' 3D models, along with information about the InSciTE program, will be on display in the Cameron Library display cubes March 29th-April 20th, 2017.

Thanks to Michelle Spila and her staff for their work in putting together the display.
