The Map is Not the Terrain: Materials and Makers
Additive manufacturing (3D printing) is opening up a world of opportunity: to make iterated, one-off, or complex objects, without large-scale industrial equipment. But the digital description of an object is not the object itself. To maximise the potential of 3D printing, makers need to think about materials: what materials can be used, how processing affects the properties, and post-processing of fabricated objects. This talk (and demos) will get you to think about what you already know about materials, begin to learn how the material properties change with manufacturing techniques, and encourage to explore (and increase!) the range of materials you use.
Speaker: Deb Chachra is an an associate professor at the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering. - She writes:
» I’M AN EDUCATOR AND RESEARCHER.
I do research on the engineering student experience, and work with faculty from other engineering schools to help them develop and use new curricula and pedagogies. I also facilitate workshops around gender and technology. I write a quarterly column, Reinvention, for ASEE Prism magazine. I’M A MATERIALS SCIENTIST.
I study biological materials, mostly. Right now my students and I are investigating a type of plastic made by bees. I DO OTHER THINGS. [...] I LIKE TO TALK TO PEOPLE. [...]

Lightning Talks are a entertaining format of short lectures presenting current ideas, ongoing projects and particularly work-in-progress. The length of a talk is strictly limited to 5 minutes.
You're invited to add your lightning talk below. Don't hesitate to apply even if you feel your presentation isn't perfectly formulated, this isn't expected for such rather spontaneous talks. Chronological order subject to change:
|* Zem: a very brief intro to the hackerspace called Metalab
|* You?: Your topic
