We hosted a factory tour for a group of F.3-F.6 students, in a programme jointly held by Hong Kong 3D Printing Association (HK3DPA) and Hong Kong Christian Service (HKCS) – Kwun Tong Happy Teens Club.

During the 1-hr tour, students were able to learn the basics of medical 3D printing, understand the collaborative process between doctors and engineers from design to clinical application, as well as catching a glimpse of our Titanium 3D printer and Trio-robotics system at work. The programme was concluded with a practice session, where participants were able to try out their designs at the 3D printing workshop later that day.

We were encouraged by the students’ enthusiasm (along with some very sensible questions on study paths). We hope we offered a bit of insight for everyone to take home, and have opened up options for our youths in career choices.
