Statesman staffApril 17, 2013 

Hewlett Packard Co has donated $200,000 to Northwest Nazarene University for 3-D printing and scanning equipment to help the school’s expanding engineering program.

The donation will allow students in engineering, design, business, art and other studies visualize and build their own 3-D designs.

"Having this type of technology on the NNU campus will permit more innovative undergraduate education and research collaboration with Hewlett Packard and other local and regional companies,” said Stephen Parke, NNU’s engineering program director.

“Supporting growth and development of the engineering program in our local universities and colleges is critically important to developing the technical talent pool in the valley, and it also creates more opportunities and options for our local high school graduates looking to pursue a technical career path,” said Jim Nottingham, vice president and general manager for H-P in Boise.
