COVID-19 Response

In March 2020, CfAM supported the local and national effort against Covid-19 Working with colleagues within the University's Bioengineering Research Group, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) and a host of external collaborators. The team designed a PPE face shield with CE approval that they are 3D printing at scale for healthcare workers to use in the fight against COVID-19. Read more here.

STEM Activities

As part of our public engagement STEM activities, we visit local schools and Science events in the Nottingham area, delivering interactive activities. In this page you can find some of our recent examples.

·         FOSAC 2022 

·         Royal Society 2021 

·         Planned events 2022/2023 (to follow)

Interested in a demonstration at your event / school?

During our sessions, we explore with the students the concepts of 3D printing, how you can design an object, how a 3D printing works, as well as applications and materials used for different purposes. To make the session interactive and fun, our team carries out demonstrations using an Ultimaker 2 Go, a small light weight Fused Deposition modelling printer.
