Media contact: Kim Wysocki, kwysocki@mtllc.com

3. Potty Training

Who: Michelle D. Swaney, CEO, The Potty School

What they can discuss: The pandemic's effect on pottying (potty training and elimination communication) and how this is now affecting children entering pre-school, TK and kindergarten.

“The need for children to be potty trained this summer by far supersedes the need compared to the past two pandemic years.”

4. 3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing

Who: Danielle Cote, Assistant Professor, Mechanical & Materials Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)

What they can discuss: 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing in light of President Biden's Additive Manufacturing Forward initiative. The ability to print these large parts on site will reduce the need for expensive and complicated shipping logistics of the parts; only the feedstock material (metal wire or powder) will need to be transported to locations with existing 3D printing capabilities.
