3D printing is cool. Everything from clothes to medical devices to handguns. And now, some high school students in Missouri are using the awesomeness of 3D-printing technology to solve one of life's most annoying annoyances — watery ketchup.
Students from North Liberty High School in Liberty, MO are using CAD/CAM software to reinvent the ketchup bottle cap so that we will no longer have to fear squirting water onto our delicious French fries.
The students are participating in a Project Lead The Way (PLTW) STEM program. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The PLTW program is designed to help students innovate for a global economy.
