Medical Make-A-Thon

Come join us and Medical Makers on Saturday, February 3 at Science World to start Resident Awareness 2018 off with a Medical Make-A-Thon! We will be on site from 10 AM to 6 PM, joined by Dr. Julielynn Wong of 3D4MD, talking about 3D printing medical supplies to benefit both rural, remote communities and astronauts in space. You will have the opportunity to 3D design medical tools, and the the top designs will be 3D printed on 3D4MD’s humanitarian 3D printing system at the Mars Desert Research Station!

No experience necessary. Friends and family are welcome to come for a fun, family-friendly event. Buy your tickets – residents will be refunded their $30 fee at the door.
