Can 3D printers transform young lives?

Nick.JPGStaff and teenagers at The Door Youth Centre are starting to think so. The CBC's Susan Burgess went to the centre to find out how it came to be the home of a 3D printer, and to meet Nick McGrath - the teenager to the left who's now showing other young clients at The Door how to use it. She also spoke with Luc Lalande of Young Maker about his dream to put even more printers in the hands of at-risk youth. Click here to listen to the story.
