•3D Model and 3D Print

Learn the fundamentals of 3D modeling and 3D printing. Students will design objects in CAD modeling software and then transform these designs to tangible 3-dimensional objects using additive manufacturing technology. From prototyping, toy making, Minecraft models, home decor and more, the possibilities are truly endless

•3D Scanning and 3D Printing

+ $20 for 3D printed bust (optional)

Students will learn about the process of digital scanning, which allows objects, buildings, and even people to be transformed into digitized files. Group will learn the best practices in creating a successful scan and take turns scanning each other. Students will also be introduced to the art of mesh mixing digital files that could be exported for 3D printing.

•Circuits

Get hands on with electronics circuitry using award-winning and innovative kits that facilitate a “no solder” learning process through magnets and stickers. Projects include making interactive controllers out of everyday objects using a printer circuit board and assembling synthesizer keyboards using modular, snap-together electronics.

•Virtual Reality

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

Learn how to create immersive digital worlds with unlimited possibilities, while understanding the underlying concepts that drive modern day VR. Students will hone design and storytelling skills vital to the VR experience, then view their environments with cardboard VR headsets that are available to take back to the classroom to continue their learning.

•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.

•Animation

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
