Learn how researchers use the engineering design process to adapt 3D printers so they can print food, in this video from SciTech Now. Columbia Professor Hod Lipson shares his vision of how 3D printing can lead to meals tailored to genetic backgrounds, extreme actives such as marathons, or even celebrity chef recipes. In the accompanying classroom activity, students use the engineering design process to design a 3D printed food preparation tool or to design a meal plan.
