Video: Student Broadcast Explores “Millennial Generation” and 3-D printing on PBS

Lafayette Lens, a student-run production created in partnership with WLVT Channel 39, the Lehigh Valley PBS affiliate, aired on PBS during the last week in November. Every aspect of the show was produced by students in the Political Economy class taught by Mark Crain, Simon Professor of Political Economy and chair of policy studies. It includes two 15-minute segments: “First Globals: What’s Different about the Millennial Generation,” which explores the global awareness of Americans born between 1979 and 1994, and “Additive Manufacturing: The Third Industrial Revolution,” which looks at the groundbreaking technology of 3-D printing, which allows objects to be made on the spot from digital designs. Watch the full broadcast below.
