A technology center in Wahpeton, North Dakota, USA, now offers students the use of a 3D printer. We’re quite certain this isn’t the only school doing so, but we suspect a trend is beginning.

In fact, it isn’t the only one. Thorpe St Andrew School in Norfolk, UK is also installing a 3D printer, specifically to:

offer cutting edge design and technology to its students

As more and more schools expose students to 3D printing, we will soon see a wave of young adults entering business who are quite familiar with the concept of 3D printing. What does this mean? Only speculation is possible at this early stage, but we suspect that new and unique uses of 3D print technology will then sprout from the minds of these students.

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has written over 8,000 stories on 3D printing at Fabbaloo since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!
