3D printing at the opening of the Scottish Parliament

Activity: Other


A team from the Institute of Chemical Sciences, including Dr Stephen Mansell and PhD students Claire Lamb and Tony Walters, ran an outreach event as part of the celebrations for the opening of the Scottish Parliament. They demonstrated how 3D printing works and how it is used to both carry out and visualise new research in chemistry. Hundreds of visitors attended the very successful event and Dr Mansell said “It was great to see both children and adults fascinated by the 3D printers.” More information is available on the main Heriot-Watt University website.
