NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) — New designs are popping up every day within 757 Makerspace. The workspace calls itself a “gym for innovators,” and offers training for individuals to bring their thoughts to life. 757 Makerspace offers 3D printing assist, an industry that continues to grow every day.
“We’ll show you how to get started delivering that thought out of your head and manufacture it into a thing physical you can use,” said Beau Turner, Creative Director at 757 Makerspace.
Turner says women are breaking into this industry and delivering their thoughts to life. “Some of the leaders in the 3D print side are women that focus on this technology.”
Women like Sarah Kingsley are one of that group. She initially found 3D printing devices a couple years ago.
“I didn’t realize printing devices may layer stuff and turn it into a thing three dimensional,” said Kingsley.
Kingsley says the talent to turn it into virtually anything with these printing devices is attracting additional women.
“A stereotype may be that women are additional artsy or like jewelry, and that can be the gateway into technology,” she said.
Kingsley works at Slover Library in Norfolk that in addition offers accessibility to 3D printing. She says she tries to expose additional teens and children to 3D printing and all of its possibilities.
“Girls are going to be the upcoming generation of individuals creating things. Whether it’s a house or a piece of art or a piece of jewelry, they’re going to be the upcoming generation of individuals producing things real of the mind,” said Kingsley.
