“Having students… really helped us shed light on some of the broader challenges that Nepal faces”

“3D printing is the tip of the iceberg. 90% of the important stuff is in the design work”.

“Make sure that you’re solving real world problems and engaging with end users. It’s a great way to get people passionate about the projects that they are working on”.

We were fortunate to be joined by Ben Britton from Field Ready for the second episode in our Frontier Tech Talks webinar series.

He spoke about how he worked with local and international students to navigate skills gaps in developing a 3D printing sector in Nepal.
