High 5 4 Kids: Adam Mansour

He's just 14 going on 15, but already Adam Mansour has made his own 3D printer, a special tool used to print actual objects.

"You knock something into your power outlet, and you don't have an outlet cover," explained Adam. "You can download one, if you can find one online, or you can design one yourself, print it, and you can have a working outlet cover in maybe 30 minutes."

And while 3D printers can be pricey now, Adam is trying to make them affordable so more people can get in on the action.

"Building printers, and making things is pretty much what I want to do for the rest of my life," Adam said.

And he's gotten a helping hand from the Clubhou.se in downtown Augusta.

"It sort of helps seeing people work on things," Adam said. "If you have a question about something, you can just ask. We have instructors. You can just ask them anything."

And as for his parents - Adam didn't get his tech knack from them.

"Talking about all the results and products of the printer, they understand," Adam said. "Once I get into the technical aspects of things, that's when it starts to get complicated."

One thing his parents know - Adam is on the right track.
