At the end of last week, the upper school tech club, including Ben S. ’23, Jack M. ’25, Nick K. ’23, finished construction of a new 3D printer. When the previous Watkinson 3D printer stopped working, the club (under the leadership of Science Department Chair and Club Advisor Jean Kracke) looked into ways to repair it or build a new one. They chose to purchase a kit including parts and instructions to build a Prusa MK3S+ 3D printer. The students worked during club time and their free time to build and troubleshoot the printer. The students did all of the assembly themselves. Ms. Kracke only helped with troubleshooting and fixing some of the final problems. The club is pleased to announce they were successful and are now printing with their new tool.
