Craniotomy Challenge

Working with Dr Michael Sutcliffe from the University of Cambridge, Department of Engineering, year 12 students explore the optimal shape and size of hole to be used for relieving pressure on the brain following injury.  As part of the project students use the 3D printer to replicate sections of the skull and explore ‘brain ooze’.

Hon Man uses one of the college’s 3D printers to produce a model skull.
