I came up with this idea
…thinking it would be a great project for our students to take on. It is based upon my earlier work as Plastics Program Manager (Supplier side) working with the Xerox Corporation. I was responsible for about 100 parts in the pre-production stage for a new product they were working on. I took my knowledge of plastics, combined with the work I have done with 3D printing in the Library Maker Space and thought about our local community and all the slate available in the Slate Valley.
