3D Printing comes to H-SC Biology

As part of a seed grant project between Hampden-Sydney and Virginia Tech for the development of research opportunities in bioengineering, the Biology Department has received a 3D printer for classroom and research purposes.  As the summer research season kicks off at the College, the timing of this new acquisition could not be better:

Tyler McGaughey '19, Jason Pough '19, and Brian Tarnai '20 install and set up the new printer

The first student project that will take place using the printer will be the construction of filter structures that can be used to clean local streams and lakes.  The project is well-positioned for both undergraduate research and extension to the Department’s ongoing high school outreach program.
