Fri 7 April 2017, 13:30 – 15:30 SGT
Explorer's 3D Printing and Modeling Easter Workshop (Ages 9-11)
Kids and teens of this generation are all 3D natives. From Minecraft to 3D movies, children are surrounded by 3D images and animation from a young age. Spatial thinking capabilities are a critical component of developmental
This course is designed to introduce 3D modeling and printing techniques to the 3D natives. Specifically catered to beginners, we start with an introduction of 3D modeling, navigating through the interface of TinkerCad, a beginner friendly 3D modeling software.
The course then covers 3D design elements and principles, dissects how 3D printer works, and moves into modeling more complex structures.
The workshop finishes with a complete 3D product which is printed out for kids to take home.
- Learn the elements and principles of 3D design, including space, negative/positive shapes, values, texture
- Learn the design of 3D printer and the implication of low cost 3D printing has on prototyping and product design
- Learn the fundamental guiding principles of 3D prototyping
- A printed version of 3D design of their final project
What to bring:
- A laptop (PC/Mac, preferably Mac) with charger
- A mindset to create and experiment!
