Outreach Activity Teaches High School Students About Molecular Deformation & Additive Manufacturing

A group of students at Pullman High School explored the science behind the PrinTimber project, which uses 3D printing to transform timber waste into housing. They learned how polymers change when stretched on a molecular level. PrinTimber utilizes this concept to benefit affordability, sustainability, and tackle climate change one house at a time.
