7.19. 3D Printing: Inventions! – Day-long children Workshop


About this class

Inventions! Kids will explore engineering and what it takes to create their own product. With 3D printing, kids now have an opportunity to bring their ideas to life. Using 3D printers and design software kids can create their ideas and almost instantly test them out in solid, stable prototypes. In this day-long workshop students will work together in teams and learn about the process of 3D Printing from expert designers and educators before designing their very own projects in 3D. And yes, each student will leave the room with their own prints, free of charge: everything is included in the training fee. Additionally students will gain exposure to the main facets of 3D Printing including design, 3D Modelling, preparing the file for print, and finally, 3D Printing.
