KIDS' STEAM PD DAY
Get your kids ready for the future!
Join us on Friday, October 23rd in the morning and/or in the afternoon for our exciting Professional Development Day. During this day kids will be able to learn about lustration, Design & Sticker Making as well as the principles of 3D Design & 3D Printing
3D Design & 3D printing
Friday, Oct 23, 2020
9:30 am to noon.
The feedback we often get from kids is "best PD day ever!".
This 2.5 hr workshop taught by an experienced materials engineer instructor will introduce participants to 3D design principals and teach them about a free 3D design tool, Tinkercad. Participants will also learn about 3D printing mechanics, trends and technologies and will be guided to create increasingly sophisticated 3D models.
By the end of the PD Day workshop, participants will have developed several 3D models and will be able to select one of their models to be 3D printed on one of our Zen Maker Lab 3D printers.
We will ground ship one 3D printed model per participant (approximately 5cm x 5cm x 5cm) and ship to each participant. Shipping to a Canadian or US address is included in the price of the workshop. Please allow 1-2 weeks to receive your shipment. Shipping outside of Canada or the US is extra.
No experience necessary. If your child already has some experience with 3D design and 3D printing, we can provide some more advanced activities for him or her.
We will include some physical activity exercises as part of the PD half day with a semi-pro baseball player so that there isn't too much screen time.
REQUIREMENTS: Laptop, desktop computer, chromebook, tablet or iPad.
INTENDED AGES: Grades 4-7
PRICE: $75 includes 3D printing one 3D print object that your child creates in the PD Day workshop and shipping to you.
