"Teaching people about 3D printers earlier on can inspire people not to be afraid of it later."

On this episode of Spotlight on Science, architecture senior Renee Dobre made the case for the functionality of 3D printing in many different industries at this year’s TEDxUOregon event. Becky Hoag interviewed Dobre along with her 3D printer, "Ginger."

Help us save student newsrooms

In conjunction with Save Student Newsrooms day on April 25, we launched our $3,500 campaign to provide our newsroom with some of the tools and resources needed to compete in the digital world.

We are asking for your generosity at this time to help us update our multimedia equipment.

We have not been able be purchase any multimedia equipment since 2013 and are working with lenses that are 17 years old. Unfortunately, we often rely on students using their own equipment.

Your donations will not only help Emerald Media Group produce better content, but it will also better prepare our student journalists for professional positions by giving them opportunities to use state of the art equipment.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the Emerald Media Group and our student journalists.
