All classes are recommended for anyone over 10 years old. For the build a 3D printer class High school and up.


ALL STUDENTS GET A FREE 3D PRINTED GIFT, A $10 VALUE !!!


Basics of 3D Printing

Description: In this class, students will use TinkerCAD to design a basic fidget, and walk through the process to design and 3D print a simple item. Due to time constraints, we may only be able to 3D print one item, but you can take your file to any public library to 3D print.

Required Materials: Each student needs to bring a laptop computer with internet access.


Advanced 3D Printing

Description: In this class, students will learn advanced 3D printing methods and requirements. They will also learn about different 3D printing materials. In the second half of the class we will use TinkerCAD to produce a 3D printable object that can work with a standard Mason Jar. In this activity, the students produce a 3D printable file that incorporates the ubiquitous Mason jar with a 3D printable attachment.

Required Materials: Each student needs to bring a laptop computer with internet access. Mason Jars are provided. TinkerCAD or other CAD skills can help.


Accessibility Through 3D Printing

Description : In this class, you will look at issues facing people with disabilities in the world. Taking this knowledge forward, they will develop a 3D printable device or set of devices for people in need. We will explore the eNable prosthetic hand and may build one for a person in need.

Required Materials: Each student needs to bring a laptop computer with internet access. Optional Materials; hand tools.


Build a 3D Printer

Description:  In this class the students will build a desktop 3D printer from a kit. The goal is to go from kit to operating a 3D printer, with each student capable of taking home a working 3D printer.


Printer Kit:TBA, please stay tuned for the details.


Required Materials: Each student needs to bring a laptop computer with internet access. Optional Materials: Metric Allen keys, screwdriver, wire stripper / cutters, hobby knife, scissors.
