Douglas (an MFS student) and his dad Geva got a 3D printer for the school–in kit form. I came down to helped them set it up. It was an awesome experience. Since I got my 3D printer pre-assembled, it was great to be able to build a similar (same company, different model) printer from the ground up. I also had a great time joking around about rhinos, bicycles, superglue, nanobots, and hegemony/world dictatorship with Douglas and Geva. I’ll be going back down at least once a month. Some of the things I’ll be doing include helping set up the Makerspace there and, at some point, helping Geva run a “Make Almost Anything” class for the students and others.
