Be a medical superhero! Learn how to improve the quality of life and save lives for people in rural or remote areas with a 3-D printer and a little ingenuity. No medical background required.

Their website says a “Medical Maker is anyone who wants to use their heart, hands, and mind to make healthcare better,”  and they want you to supply your creativity, skills, and ingenuity to collaborate with other people to come up with simple, cost-effective solutions to real-world, and off-world, medical problems using a 3-D printer.

Medical Makers are hosting Manchester’s Inaugural Medical Make-A-Thon Saturday, January 6th – Sunday, January 7th at Manchester Makerspace, 36 Old Granite Street, Manchester, NH

This two-day event includes workshops on

  • 3-D printing
  • Design Skills
  • Use of free and open source software
  • Prototyping

The event is open to people and teams of all ages, no design, 3-D printing, or medical skills required.  All proceeds support Medical Makers humanitarian projects.

Cost: $30 – $60
