3D Printing: Demonstration of Math Research and Education

December 8, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

3D Printing: Math Research & Education, Optical Neural Circuitry: 1
Meter to 1 Ångström, and  Dance!

Thursday Dec 8th, 5:30 pm
Glendening Annex
St. Mary’s College of Maryland

Students from our inaugural 3D Printing class will present their 3D
prints and describe their experiences in the course.  What would go into
a 3D toolbox to help students visualize Calculus objects?  How does
light going into your eye, transforms into chemicals in your brain?
Would you better understand if you held the neurons in your hands?  How
many tetrahedra fit into a sphere?  No one knows … yet!  Can you twist
hyperbolic paper into a Mobius Band?  No one knows … yet!   How do you
3D print a dancer?  Is there a formula for that?

Sponsored by the Arts Alliance of St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
