3D Printing Ages 6+
Skill Level: Basic & Advanced
Ratio Guarantee: 8 students per instructor
Prerequisite: Age only
This course is a revolution and is all about personal fabrication, that’s happening now. 3D printing is poised to unlock the potential in every person to create, innovate and fabricate. It’s already transforming manufacturing; soon it will change the world.
Recognizing the profound implications of 3D printing for the future of design and manufacturing, Robotics Labs has designed this course to prepare students for current and emerging careers in those fields. Students will get hands-on practical 3D printing experience and a critical eye for the technology’s advantages and limitations. From there, the possibilities are theirs to explore.
What Will Students Take Home?
Each student will go home with photos of the project they created during the week.
