Limited Capacity filling up

Would you rather develop an assistive device, develop an educative product, or develop your own product idea? Those are three topics among students of the 3D Printing class in Atlantic University College have to choose to develop during their final project. Consistently through the past 18 months, 72% of those students chose to develop projects that could potentially lead to positive social impact over developing their own commercial product ideas.

This presentation tells the story of those projects and the challenges behind a continually transforming 3d printing class for millenials interested in investing in social impact while learning hands-on.
