Intro to 3D Printing Summer Workshops

Can you imagine creating your own toy or tool on a computer and then bringing it to life? Join us for two sessions of designing and printing 3D objects. Kids will have the chance to create and contribute to the digital world, and gain a better understanding of a new technology. Make something fun, make something useful, or both!

Ages

This program is geared towards kids ages 10-18 years old. This is due to level of math and critical thinking skills required. If your child is on the edge of these age and has a high interest in the class, please contact us to discuss.

Enrollment

Enrollment ends when the class is filled with 30 students. Attendance to both classes is not mandatory but is highly encouraged.

Previous knowledge

For the most parts kids just need to bring themselves and a willingness to have fun and learn. However, a child should be very comfortable with the following basic computer functions:
1) Using a mouse scroll and a keyboard to type
2) Locating an Internet browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer) and typing in a web address
3) Using features of a browser (back, forward, stop, search, refresh, history, home buttons, address bar, loading status)
