August 30, 2019
York County Libraries and Resin8 have teamed up to offer a 3D Printing event aimed at helping teens explore related careers and to understand how 3D Printing can solve real-world problems.  The free event will be held on Saturday, September 28 in the Teen Forum at Martin Library in York.   The program is open to teens, ages 13 to 18, and will be held in three one-hour sessions at 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 11:00 a.m.  
 
Local engineers Lee King and Soji Otuyelu from Resin8 will introduce teens to 3D Printing and discuss its role in various career fields that teens may be considering for post-graduation. The use of 3D Print technology is growing in manufacturing, engineering, healthcare, architecture and the arts.   Participants will learn about the skills needed for related jobs. The interactive session also includes an opportunity to partner with other teens to brainstorm how 3D-Printed solutions can be applied to real-life issues.   
 
King and Otuyelu have a combined 24 years of experience in engineering, manufacturing, distribution, marketing and education. Through their Resin8 education initiative they are providing hands-on learning opportunities to Central Pennsylvania Students.   
 
Registration is required by September 10. Interested teens should sign for their session time of choice at yorklibraries.org/Resin8-3D.  Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
