3D printing is coming to a classroom near you, thanks to efforts from the University of Southern Miss Eagle Maker Hub.

In partnering with the Jackson County Fab Lab, educators from around the state will have a chance to get hands-on experience with tech-influenced DIY modules and unprecedented professional-grade tools.

The first session of the Southern Mississippi Maker Educator meetup will be hosted on the campus of USM Wednesday, September 13. Educators will be able to tour one of the Jackson County mobile Fab Labs and find out how to bring this growing technology to students in the classroom, as well as to communities.

Can’t make the session on Wednesday? Find out more at the Eagle Maker Hub Facebook page:
