With your generous support we've reached 98% of our goal of $7000 - the 3-D Geological Printing Laboratory is about to become a reality!
We really want to thank all the great donors out there who have supported our project, and especially a very substantial and generous gift from Tyler Rubin - thank you!
And since we still have 6 days left, we're adding a few stretch goals!
If we can raise $1000 beyond the $7000 goal in the time remaining, we will have enough funds to add lithographic resin printing to the laboratory, which produces 3-D prints in a single color, and in very high resolution! This is a great new technology that will allow our students to explore objects in even more detail!
If we reach $2000 beyond the $7000 goal, we will add a portable scanner to the lab that will allow students to make scans of objects in the field and take them back to the laboratory for printing. Imagine being able to scan a classical outcrop or rock formation and then being able to print it in miniature for closer study in the classroom!
Finally, once again thank you to all of our donors. You rock! Please make sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter (#GEO3DUMD).
