If you have never heard of bio-printing, or find it a very distant topic, here is your chance to know it better. Mr Fan Mingwei, Co-founder and Director of Bio3D Technologies (first bio-printing company in Singapore and one of the few in the world presently) will be showing one of their bioprinters and explain what is bio-printing at the Singapore Mini Maker Faire this weekend. Mingwei learnt about the Singapore Mini Maker Faire through a discussion at the Science Centre previously and he thought it might be a good idea to showcase this relatively new technology to Singaporeans. This would be the first time that he will be showcasing a real bioprinter at such a public event, and will even do some simple demonstrations. We are indeed honoured!
As this would be Mingwei’s first time participation at the Singapore Mini Maker Faire, he shared that he is looking forward to lots of fun and excitement learning about new and interesting works by different makers. He found it exciting that such a trend is picking up in Singapore and he hopes to see more people and organisation engaged in such a movement.
It would definitely be a rare occasion that one can see a real bioprinter and learn how it works. Don’t miss this opportunity this weekend at the Singapore Mini Maker Faire that will be held at Senja-Cashew CC!
