George Meadows and Tim Owens’ Work Featured in Campus Technology

George Meadows, associate professor in the College of Education, and Tim Owens in the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies were featured in Campus Technology for their work with 3D printing in an article titled “Making Stuff: 3D Printing on Campus.” Meadows and Owens are in the process of exploring the technology and documenting the process at UMW Blogs in preparation to integrate the device as a curriculum component to a freshman seminar course in the fall. 3D printing technology allows students to build 3-dimensional models on a computer using free and easy-to-use software and then “print” them by extruding plastic in layers to create an object.

  1. Congratulations George and TIm, the work you are doing with 3-D Printing is really amazing, and it is impressive how early you both are innovating around DIY makerbots, bravo!!! I have a feeling this is the first of many such articles, thanks for making UMW shine nationally.

  2. You guys rock!

    I recognize that Tardis cookie cutter! I’ve had so much fun watching this project develop. It’s a privilege to work with such innovative educators.

  4. A year ago I’d never heard of University of Mary Washington. Now it seems a week doesn’t go by that I don’t learn of some other amazing and innovative goings on at UMW.

    Well done Tim and Prof. Meadows. I’ve enjoyed following this project and look forward to whatever comes next.
