WVUP, Chemours team up to teach 3D printing technology to teens


A program at West Virginia University at Parkersburg is teaching area students about 3-D printing to help spark an interest in technology and its real world applications.

WVU-P’s Workforce and Economic Development Division, in partnership with Chemours, is hosting the Teen 3D Printing Academy at the college.
