The hub of our activities at the University of Maryland College Park is the Technology Advancement Program Building Makerbot Innovation Center, a lab of over 50 3D printers also known as the Terrapin Works. The University of Maryland MakerBot Innovation Center is a centralized, scalable 3D printing space that empowers everyone to invent, innovate, iterate, and replicate. It has a reputation for printing with carbon fiber, which propelled one of its students to receive a grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Terrapin Works will give participants exposure to nine different 3D printers and other related technologies in scanning, CAD, waste plastic recycling and filament extrusion. Their campus tour will include a bioprinting lab.

We hope you will join us at our event and help us plan for a global conference in 2018!
