The Illinois MakerLab was able to participate in the Illinois Women's Basketball Team’s Field Trip Day! Each year, the Illinois Women's Basketball Team hosts a morning home game as their season opener, and invite elementary school students from the community to attend during their regular school day. We were fortunate to have a booth this year to give the young minds of tomorrow a look at the potentials of 3D printing. We had over 100 schoolchildren who were enthusiastic discovering our past prints, and surprised with the capabilities of an Ultimaker printer. We are hoping see some of those kids in the future to celebrate their birthday parties. We are also hopeful that we sparked their minds on the maker community here in Illinois!
