At this event there will be talks, art exhibitions, and sponosr exhibits, all focusing on various additive technologies. Just to give you a sample, here is the keynote lineup:


  • Brian McLean, the Director of Rapid Prototype at LAIKA, the 3D animation house that brought us Coraline, Missing Link, Kubo, ParaNorman, and more!
  • Jordan Miller, Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and Founder, Advanced Manufacturing Research Institute (AMRI), Houston at Rice University. His primary research interests combine synthetic chemistry, 3D printing, microfabrication, and molecular imaging to direct cultured human cells to form more complex organizations of living vessels and tissues for research in regenerative medicine. Recently the Science May cover-story: Engineered Vasculature
  • Gary Stager,  journalist, teacher educator, consultant, professor, software developer, publisher, school administrator, and co-author of Invent To Learn – Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom.

In 2015 SEArch+ was awarded the top prize in NASA’s Centennial Challenge for a 3D-Printed
  • Sarah Flora, the Program Director of Radiology’s 3D Lab at Geisinger, a 14+ hospital system spanning across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In her role, Sarah leads an elite group of MRI and CT technologists in the processing of on-screen medical reconstructions. Additionally, she segments, designs, and 3D prints patient-specific medical models to aid in pre-surgical planning, patient and learner education, surgical simulation, and surgical aid tools.
