3D Printing the Future Conversation Starters

1. Mindy wishes she could print 3D pancakes. If you had a 3D printer that could make an unlimited number of any object you want what would it be?

2. Medical researchers are working on printing replacement body parts such as new ears for people who are born with medical conditions involving their ears. What other ways could doctors help people using 3D printing?

3. We learned how 3D printers are being used in medicine and in space. What other kind of science could they be helpful for? For example, can you think of a way 3D printing could help the environment or animals?
