3D exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry

Date Posted: 03/07/2015

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths pupils of all Key Stages can learn about ground breaking design and life changing innovation through visiting 3D: Printing the Future at the Museum of Science and Industry.

Students of all Key Stages can visit 3D: Printing the Future at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, to discover how innovators utilise modern technology to revolutionise the fields of art, medicine and engineering. 

The display features over 500 3D printed objects including the first bike with a fully 3D printed metal frame created by Empire Cycles and Renishaw, replacement body parts and the prototype of the first ever radar scanner developed to detect 3D printed guns and weapons.

Pupils will also see how 3D printing has inspired artists such as Tobias Klein whose sculpture Inversive Embodiment incorporates MRI scans and St Paul’s Cathedral.

Schools can request for a museum staff member to demonstrate how the printer works.

3D: Printing the Future is currently on display and runs until 20th September.
