According to Andre Simpson, a professor at U of T Scarborough’s department of physical and environmental sciences and researchers at the University of Toronto,” turned waste cooking oil – from the deep fryers of a local McDonald’s – into a high-resolution, biodegradable 3D printing resin. Because we’re using what is essentially a natural product – in this case fats from cooking oil – nature can deal with it much better.”

Using a 3D printing pen to draw and create 3D objects can be a lot of fun and allows for a lot of creativity!
According to the 3Doodler, ” This is the world’s first 3D printing pen. The 3Doodler can be used to make jewelry, toys, decorations, and so on in the air. This is the world’s smallest 3d printing pen you can watch science videos on Twitter. The 3Doodler’s website provides stencils and videos to help users come up with the idea.¨
Do you think using a 3D printing pen is a good way to encourage creativity and innovation? Why or why not?
