Lauren Oleksyk, Army NSRDEC

Move over MRE's, the Army is developing 3D food printers for soldiers in the field. If successful, soldiers will instantly have access to their food of choice by pressing the print button. The new technology could save money, avoid wasted food and give soldiers more food choices. Lauren Oleksyk is the food leader at the Army's Natick Research, Development and Engineering Center. She joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the new project.

Less than 1 percent of the artifacts at the Smithsonian Institution are on public display. But 3-D printing could help the agency send millions more artifacts to museums and schools around the world. Gunter Waibel is director of the Digitization Program Office, and Adam Metallo is 3-D Program Officer of the Smithsonian Institution. They're both Service to America medal finalists in the Citizen Services category, and explained their pioneering work on In Depth with Francis Rose. View a gallery of all the Sammies finalists.
