3-D printer demos at Discovery Museum — Aug. 1-2

Visitors to Creative Discovery Museum the next two days can witness “the magic of 3-D printing.”

GigTank, a business accelerator that helps entrepreneurs make use of the city’s high-speed, fiber-optic network, is collaborating with the children’s museum for a session showing children how technology can positively impact their lives. GigTank will set up four stations to highlight the new 3-D technology.

During the demonstrations, set for 11 a.m.-2 p.m. today and Friday, Aug. 1-2, visitors can see their scanned image on a computer screen, learn about 3-D printing and how it works and see objects that have been made by a 3-D printer.

“This event will help children harness their imaginations and engage in interactive activities to transform idea into reality,” says Gig Tank specialist Madison Li.

Li and Dylan Petruskevicius will work under the guidance of Mike Bradshaw, GigTank’s entrepreneur-in-residence.

The demonstration is included with paid admission to the museum ($11.95). The museum is open 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. daily. For more information, call 423-756-2738 or visit
