3D PRINT YOUR OWN CREATION!
In these three-day programs, attendees learn the ins and outs of 3D printing and design. Attendees remix and print open source designs from Thingiverse, learn to create their own printable objects using the free programs Tinkercad and Sculptris, and print them on Greenville Public Library’s Makerbot 3D Printer. These programs have been incredibly fun and rewarding.
Previously I've offered this program to attendees in the 6th-9th grade age range, and I'm excited to offer it to other age groups in the future!
