Hey, US and UK Shapies! We’re participating in a few events this weekend that we’d love for you to be a part of. 

The USA Science and Engineering Festival is happening Friday, April 26, to Sun, April 27, in Washington, DC. This event’s mission is to the is to re-invigorate the interest of the nation’s youth in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by producing and presenting the most compelling, exciting, educational, and entertaining science festival in the USA.

Natalia, Blair and Eric from Shapeways will be there with community members all weekend and we’d love for you join us. Stop by Booth 1045 in Hall A to say hi and check out our famous community-designed materials wall. 
Friday is preview day but Saturday and Sunday the event will be open to the public from 9am to 6pm, with free admission.
To kick off the event, our CEO, Peter Weijmarshausen, will be speaking to students during Session Two of the X-STEM Extreme Symposium, Thursday, from 10:40am to 11:40am at the Walter E.

    It was a great festival in USA for science, technology, Engineering and math
    in Washington. It was an extreme idea for extending the knowledge and
    beliefs of the youth.
