3D Prints in the Alma Mater Time Capsule


Time Capsule

Earlier this month, the Alma Mater returned to campus and with it a time capsule was placed into the base of the statue. Inside of the time capsule the College of Business placed two 3D printed models, a mini MakerLab keychain and a scale model of Altgeld created by the Illinois Geometry Lab, which is housed at Altgeld itself. The Alma Mater is one of the most recognized symbols of the University and has represented our motto of ‘Learning and Labor’ since its unveiling in 1929. Since the statue has been restored, it will now stand for many years to come housing the 3D prints within the capsule until it is opened in the future.
