•3D Modeling from TinkerCAD to Autodesk 360 Fusion

Beginner: TinkerCAD is a beginner-friendly interface for 3D modeling used to make toys, prototypes, home decor, Minecraft models, jewelry – the list is truly endless!

Intermediate to Advanced: Autodesk Fusion 360 is a powerful, easy and user-friendly 3D application that can create amazing and complex objects starting from basic shapes or sketches. These objects can then be 3D printed or manufactured with CNC, laser cutters, water jet cutters, etc. The ability to start from content reduces the learning curve and avoids the need of the level of abstraction required when starting from a black canvas and sketches.

•3D Scanning and 3D Printing

+ $20 for 3D printed bust (optional)

Using a hand-held high-quality 3D scanner, students will learn to use the device to generate a full-color 360° 3D model of themselves that can be edited and remixed in TinkerCAD or Autodesk 360 Fusion. These avatars can also be inserted into gaming environments. The models can also be 3D printed in single-color to create a classic bust or statue of the student.

•Circuits and Electronics

We offer workshop in both electronic soldering for older students as well as solderless circuitry projects. Using award-winning and innovative STEAM kits, we engage students in out-of-the-box thinking with creative goal-driven projects such as making conductive controllers out of everyday objects and assembling their own synthesizer keyboard using modular, snap-together electronics.

•Virtual Reality

+ $10 for VR viewer to take home (optional)

In this workshop, we introduce students to the underlying design and technological concepts that drive VR. With immersive HTC VIVE, full-room scale virtual reality system, the entire Media Lab can be turned into a virtual space for exploration and experimentation. We will cover topics such as creating 3D environments, the history behind the technology and projections on future applications. Each student will create their own virtual reality environment that they can view and share with a cardboard VR headset.

•Coding and Robotics

Using Makeblock, an educational programmable robot building platform that helps you learn the construction and control of DIY robots, we will explore concepts relating to coding and mechanical engineering. Block-based coding language makes starting easy and teaches computational thinking.


Unleash your students’ creativity by animating characters, drawings, and digital renderings. Students will use clay, paper, and 3D printed elements to set up and lay out environments for stop animation. Full day options dive deeper into creating voice overs and scene edits. This workshop fuses art and technology together with an engaging curriculum designed to teach the principles of animation

•Custom Workshop
