Camp 3D Printing: Grades 5-7
One of the hottest new trends, 3D printing is perfect for prototyping, CAD development skills, and is just plain fun!
3D printers work by following a computer's digital instructions to "print" an object using materials such as plastic, ceramics, and metal. The printing process involves building up an object one layer at a time until it's complete. For instance, some 3D printers squirt out a stream of heated, semi-liquid plastic that solidifies as the printer's head moves around to create the outline of each layer within the object.
This is an interactive camp designed to teach campers how to optimize designs and create a three-dimensional object of almost any shape from a 3D model.
Campers will learn about CAD (computer assisted design), modeling and prototyping, the history of 3D printing, and how businesses and entrepreneurs are using 3D printers for everyday applications.
They will also print their own 3D design to take home!
