3D Printing Research

3D Printing is Changing... a lot!

For this assignment, you will need to do some research into the amazing, changing world of 3D Printing. 3D Printing is an example of a 'disruptive technology' - meaning a technology that has the potential to have a huge impact in how things are done in a lot of different areas.

Your assignment is to:

1) Research 3D Printing and identify a topic that you want to explore more deeply.

Your chosen topic might be broad (For Example: 3D Printing in Medicine) OR narrow (For Example: 3D Printing of Prosthetics). However, you CANNOT choose a very broad topic such as "3D Printing" or "The Future of 3D Printing".

2) Once you have identified your topic, you will need to decide how you want to communicate your findings. Your choices are:

  • Brochure (Use Google Docs. Landscape with 3 columns).
  • Poster (Use Google Docs, 8 1/2 inch by 14 inch Portrait)
  • Slideshow (Use Google Slides).

3) Your presentation/brochure/poster must include:

  • Clear indication of your topic.
  • Be visually interesting
  • Communicate 3-5 things about this topic.
  • Include references (can be on a separate sheet or the back of the brochure/poster. Use a separate slide for the slideshow).

If you choose the Brochure or Poster option, you CAN choose to do them either on Google Docs OR on paper.

Make sure you are respecting Academic Integrity. This means no plagiarism. For a short assignment like this, all the text should be in your own words (NO or very limited use of quotations).
