A group proposing the "Engineering Research Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power" learned that it has made the first cut in its bid for funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). NSF called on the group's members—including the University of Minnesota, Georgia Institute of Technology, Purdue University, the University of Illinois, Vanderbilt University, and the National Fluid Power Association, among others—to submit a final proposal for the center by mid-June.

These free camps are designed for children ages 10 to 18. Attendees are introduced to 3D CAD software and shown how 3D printers can make their work a reality. Here we check out the stops in California and Utah.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
