Facilitated By: Alison Alhadeff, Terrie Millard, Jon Mehlferber

Come hear how the UNG 2013 Presidential Innovation Award funded our research on 3D printing and enabled significant opportunities for teaching and discovery for not only us, but also for all of the students. Eight students (seven graduate students and one undergraduate student) were extensively involved in the research.

This project provides a model for how other interdisciplinary research could be designed.
