Graduation Profile: Could 3D printing change a life? This Mason senior is confident it can.

When Denys Kuratchenko began working at Northern Virginia Community College’s 3D printing lab in 2017, he didn’t anticipate that his projects would change lives. But the expression on a young girl’s face made him realize he could. Since transferring to George Mason University in 2018, the senior information systems and operations management major has worked at the MIX at Innovation as a maker assistant. Students, faculty, and staff come in to use the equipment, including several 3D printers, and Kuratchenko assesses their needs to determine how they can best use the technology to achieve their goals >> https://fal.cn/387m2
