The space shuttle will carry a 3-D printer to the space station for the purpose of creating tools needed there. Is this something like a replicator on Star Trek? This isn't the first case of science fiction leading the way to innovative, scientific technologies.


NASA to launch 3D printer into space


But wait there is more...View this TED video about a 3D printer that uses living cells to output a transplantable kidney. Using similar technology, Dr. Atala's young patient Luke Massella received an engineered bladder.



3D printers are becoming more reasonable in price and they may soon find their way into schools.  It is technology such as the 3D printer that is stimulating our students to pursue STEM courses in science, technology, engineering, and yes, mathematics.
