DfAM for Education

DfAM for Education

We are pleased to announce the next event in the EPSRC Design for Additive Manufacturing Network series of workshops, DfAM for Education. In partnership with Dr Eujin Pei and Brunel University London, the event will host speakers covering different aspects of the education spectrum, focusing on the development of DfAM in educational settings from primary through to PhD.

DfAM in education is an important field to explore, and we will hear different perspectives from experts on how DfAM is developing in the area, as well as highlight ideas, challenges and questions on the future of Design for Additive Manufacturing in education.

The event will take place online and will feature speakers and interactive sessions. Please see the draft agenda for the day here:
