Student reporter highlights how 3D printing supports academics on campus
Broadcast Media Studies student Katelyn White used her reporter instincts to pursue a news story that featured the Maker Studio. The fourth year student was challenged to develop, write, and produce a news story as part of a final assignment in her Multimedia Content Production course. White was interested in 3D printing, specifically the ways in which this relatively new technology is used to support teaching and innovative scholarship at universities. Several hours of footage shooting 3D printers in action, as well as interviews with Maker Studio Specialist Kerry Harmer and select faculty and students who have made use of the printers lead to an article published on cmru.ca, as well as a video news story.
