Science of Innovation: 3-D Printing

You may be interested to watch this video Science of Innovation: 3-D Printing.  Good basic overview.  Cheesy music.  A little heavy on the patent information.

Interestingly, this video comes with attached lesson plans (Engineering Perspective (Grades 6-12) | Science Perspective (Grades 6–12)) and is part of a 11-part series produced by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and NBC Learn in order to celebrate the 165th birthday of one of America's greatest innovators, Thomas Edison.

The other episodes look pretty cool, too:

  • What is Innovation?
  • Bionic Limbs
  • Biofuels
  • 3D Printing
  • Electronic Tattoos
  • Biometrics
  • Self-Driving Cars
  • Synthetic Diamonds
  • Anti-Counterfeiting Devices
  • Fuel Cell Efficiency
  • Smart Concrete
