3D Printer Grant from Laura B. Frick - PNC Bank Helps Wayne College Students Apply Knowledge
A 3D printer recently purchased by The University of Akron Wayne College is facilitating real-world application of what students learn in the classroom.
The 3D printer, purchased with a grant from The Laura B. Frick Charitable Trust – PNC Bank Trustee, is currently being used by students in the College’s engineering program. Students who in the past created 3D images to submit as class assignments are now producing and submitting actual objects instead. According to Wayne College’s interim dean and engineering professor, Dan Deckler, the printer has created a buzz among students who are now often found spending their free time in the 3D printing lab.
