Rising Grades 9 - 12

August 3 - 21
Monday - Friday
Upper School Campus
(Course #848)
In this course, students will become proficient with 3D modeling software, learn about prototyping, and explore the design process. The class will be project-based, and students will fabricate their designs using rapid prototyping equipment such as a 3D printer, laser cutter, or CNC router. Projects will focus on problem solving. Students will be presented with problems that will require them to think and approach tasks with a critical and open mindset, and they will be challenged to come up with creative solutions. Students will also learn how to measure with precision, hypothesize and ideate concepts for builds, make prototypes, and finally, test out their designs in real-world situations. 
Note: Students will need to bring their laptop and a two button mouse with a scroll wheel
