Intro to 3D Printing 5-6

Elementary school students learn how to design 3D objects and bring them to life on a 3D printer.

In this course, experienced instructors guide students through a comprehensive primer on to set up, use, and troubleshoot printers, as well as the use of computer-assisted design software required to create the digital models that the printers produce.

Lessons highlight different kinds of printing materials that are available, as well as commercial and industry-scale applications of 3D printers. Activities focus on creating objects around a certain theme each day, such as cities, puzzles, or fantasy objects.

Fairfax Collegiate provides enough 3D printers for students to share in pairs, and students will take home approximately 6-8 small objects throughout the course.
