3D Printing

Rising Grades 7 to 9

Design and print 3D objects.

Students learn how to set up, use, and troubleshoot printers, and how to create digital models for printing using computer-assisted design software.

Lessons explore different printing materials and diverse 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. Students take home approximately 6-8 small objects throughout the course.
