Lab's 3D Design Summer Academy for community college students returns

The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) 3D Design Summer Academy is back by popular demand. Community college students are invited to register for this popular workshop, held at LLNL’s Edward Teller Education Center June 24-28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

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.

The academy is open to enrolled, degree-pursuing students at a community college, 18 years and older. Students must be a U.S. citizen and have their own transportation to and from the workshop. No previous experience is required. Register online by June 17. There is a $25 registration fee.

The Community College 3D Design Summer Academy is sponsored by LLNL's University Relations and Science Education Program.
