MMU Visit

By Frank McDonagh

Thursday 26th March the Passions of Youth project came to the Manchester Metropolitan University to come and look at some of the activities the students get up to.

The day started with researching some videos to do with the sports some of the students were into for example football and boxing. This was followed by a tour of ‘The Shed’ to see the equipment students use in the media centre.

They we went to the 3D printing room where they showed the students the possibilities of what they can build – For example, football boots designed to fit the footballers feet perfectly.

Finally the day ended with the blog in workshop which is actually where I wrote this review.

Overall I enjoyed the visit and was interested in the 3D printing as that is something that is probably going to become more common in all sports across the world.
