The appearance of a 3D printer at Notre Dame school Oct. 12 had a Grade 3 class listening and answering questions, but student Nick Logan could answer most of the questions presented to the class by his father, Imagination Technology Inc. President Chris Logan. Nick’s grandfather Bill Logan was also on hand for the demonstration.
Chris Logan said the company will be starting a club for young students willing to learn about the basics of design, software and making their own 3D creations.

At the Oct. 12 demonstration, students learned about making a prosthetic hand and how the printer can have many practical functions.

During the year the students will have an opportunity to see a design created in the 3D printer.
