LIVERMORE, California – Register now for the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) 3D Design Summer Academy for enrolled, degree-pursuing community college students. This weeklong workshop will be held June 12-16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily at the Edward Teller Education Center (ETEC) at LLNL.

Participating students will learn about cutting-edge scientific research conducted at the Laboratory and experience the nature of science through direct involvement and use of equipment, processes and practices found in research labs. This hands-on workshop will explore the principles behind 2D and 3D printing, with students designing and printing their own projects during the week. Students will tour the Additive Manufacturing facility inside the Laboratory to see real-world printing in practice and interface with Lab scientists and engineers.

No previous experience is required. Registrants must be 18 years or older and a U.S. citizen. Register online by May 15. There is a $25 registration fee.

The Community College 3D Design Summer Academy is sponsored by LLNL's University Relations and Science Education Program. Visit the LLNL Science Education Program website for more information about this and other educational outreach programs.
