Desktop Metal Forum: Affordable 3D Metal Printing
Metal 3D printing has barely scratched the surface. More than 20 years after its introduction; it’s still too industrial and expensive for prototyping and it’s not fast enough to be used for series production. In response to these independent problems, Desktop Metal was created to change the way products are brought to market with metal 3D printing.
The NWIRC is pleased to host Cimquest for a presentation and open discussion about Desktop Metal’s affordable, safe and precise metal 3D printing solutions. Topics of discussion will include the process, materials and how this technology will impact how we prototype and manufacture metal parts.

September 14; 1:00 Program helps caregivers to understand dementia-related behavior.

FAFSA Completion: Step-by-step assistance in completing FAFSA
November 1; 3:00pm - 5:00pm or 5:00pm - 7:00pm. Held at the CEC. Please note: You must have your FAFSA ID & 2016 income tax
Students seeking federal or state aid for the 2017-18 academic year may complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), beginning October 1, 2017. The 2017-18 FAFSA will require financial information from 2016.
In advance of beginning the FAFSA, ideally three days, dependent students and their filing parent and independent students should create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) at www.fsaid.gov.
A different email address is required for both parent and student in creating the FSA ID. Only the owner of the FSA ID should create and use the account. Meaning, parents should not create their student’s FSA ID and students should not create their parent’s FSA ID.
For the FAFSA completion workshop, students and the filing parent should have their FSA ID usernames, passwords and challenge (security) questions’ answers readily available.
To complete the FAFSA, you need to provide information from several types of documents. We recommend you gather this paperwork before you begin the FAFSA to save time and to make sure you complete the FAFSA correctly.
First, identify what type of student--dependent or independent—you are.
