3DP4E Recommends:

· A great answer from OpenDesk to the basic question: What is Digital Fabrication?

Digital Fabrication For Kids:

· The City X Project is an international educationalworkshop for 8-12 year-old students that teaches creative problem solving using3D printing technologies and the design process.

· The San Francisco Fab Lab isdesigning a program called, "Digital Fabrication for Kids".They are teaching kids to scan objects and use 3D Printers! Sounds like a greatwork in progress
