About Course

Campers will imagine, design, and print their very own 3-D materials in this fun and engaging camp. First, campers will examine the world around them and begin thinking of practical and unique uses for 3-D printing technology. With their ideas in mind, they’ll then learn the basics of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software to model their creations. Finally, they’ll use 3-D printers to actually produce real-world prototypes of their designs. This popular camp embodies the entire engineering lifecycle – from idea development to finished product. And best of all, campers will enjoy sharing their creations with family and friends!

What Will You Learn?

  • The principles of CAD, or computer-aided design
  • How to use TinkerCAD, the online CAD platform
  • How to design with 3D printing in mind
