Creative Discovery Museum Partners With GIGTANK

Monday, July 29, 2013

A new generation soon will be introduced to the technology at Creative Discovery Museum. GIGTANK is collaborating with Creative Discovery Museum on Thursday and Friday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. to show children how technology can positively impact their lives. GIGTANK will set up four stations focused on 3D printing to highlight this new technology.

“We are pleased to be collaborating with GIGTANK and excited about the aspiring talent that will be coming to the Museum to demonstrate this fascinating technology to a younger generation,” said Henry Schulson, Creative Discovery Museum’s executive director.

During the two-day demonstration, children and families can see their scanned image on a computer screen, learn about 3D printing and how it works by “meeting the printer,” look at objects that have been made by a 3D printer and more. 

“GIGTANK is excited to partner with Creative Discovery Museum to showcase the possibilities and potential of 3D printing technology to the younger generation in order to inspire children to dream, create and discover,” said Madison Li, a GIGTANK 2013 specialist.

Working with another GIGTANK specialist, Dylan Petruskevicius, Ms. Li hopes that "this event will help children harness their imaginations and engage in interactive activities to transform idea into reality.”

Under the guidance of Mike Bradshaw, GIGTANK's entrepreneur-in-residence, Ms. Li and Mr. Petruskevicius hope to spread the magic of 3D printing to the younger generation in Chattanooga.

The GIGTANK demonstration at Creative Discovery Museum is included with paid admission to the Museum.
