Print Your Mind 3D Launches 3D Printer Filament Recycling Challenge For High School Students

- Oct 12, 2018-

In response to the ever-growing problem of 3D printing filament waste, Calgary-based professional desktop 3D printer provider and social enterprise Print Your Mind 3D, which works to always practice business in a socially responsible way, is tasking high school students in Alberta with crowdsourcing viable solutions to turn this wasted plastic into useful products and tools. 

This is the focus of the company's latest challenge for its Enviromakers initiative, which aims to build a community of makers, designers, and the engineers worked together to solve real-world problems using 3D printing.

The challenge is open to any Alberta student in grades 10-12, though it's recommended to have a teacher help champion a team.Participants must come up with and develop plans to convert or reuse obsolete PLA materials for the manufacture of new tools or products. The plan has to include everything that would needed to execute the idea, in addition to a clearly articulated description of how it will be used and what makes it different.Students can create a new idea, or build and improve on previous applications.
