ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

"Future applications are limited only by our imagination, which makes it essential for children to learn to use 3D design and technology from primary level onwards. ....The nature of making and doing must, of course, keep pace with the technological revolution: every primary school should have 3D printers"

Lord Kenneth Baker, former Secretary of State for Education
