AAUW: Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Math

Bridgette Mongeon, a 3D artist and writer in Texas, interviewed me via Skype for Expanding Your Horizons in Science in Math, a conference that was put on by the West Harris County branch of AAUW (American Association of University Women) in Houston. Bridgette gave a presentation at this conference.

She is very inspirational and it was very nice of her to include me on such a cool thing. …


Very Happy Robot is now on Thingiverse!

So far I have uploaded two things I designed: a 3/4 sun that I used on my recent science fair project poster board, and a small 2 x 2 x 2 cm calibration box for the printer. I designed both of these files using 123d Design (an easy-to-use free 3D designing app).

Thingiverse is a CnC, Lasercutting, and 3D printing file sharing site, started by Makerbot. The files are for anybody to download and use.

3D Printer World Expo


I was honored to be asked to give a poster presentation on Friday evening as part of the 3D Printer World Expo. The conference was attended by manufacturers, medical professionals, enthusiasts, educators, artists, journalists, engineers and students. It was packed!

My poster presentation was titled "What I Learned by 3D Printing." I got to speak with Cassini Mission engineers, two journalists, and many teachers. I met many cool people, all of whom loved or were interested in 3D printing.
