This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Have you seen recent media attention and visibility about CSU’s Idea2Product 3D printing lab involved in a project garnering worldwide attention?
(e.g. http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/csu-scientists-designing-robotic-exoskeleton-to-help-people-with-spinal-cord-injuries-walk-again). A broad-based team of scientists helped a paralyzed teenager at the World Cup stand up, walk a few steps, and kick the first ball at the opening ceremonies. He was aided by a prosthetic exoskeleton controlled only by his brain waves.

You will be fascinated to hear more about the role CSU’s I2P Lab played in this hallmark event; it is but one example of the life-changing potential of 3D printing technology.

Take a tour of the I2P lab and hear a presentation on how 3D printers are being used to create prototypes and products, repair objects, develop beautiful artwork and virtually anything one can imagine. 3D printing is changing our lives now!
