STEM exCEL: 3D Printing (grades 4-6)
Kings Glen – Tuesdays, 3:30 – 4:30pm
3D Printing is a premiere class that not only teaches students how to create 3D models from an rtistic standpoint, but also teaches them from an engineering standpoint. Because the models will be printed, our instructors teach students what to consider in the construction of the model to produce the best-quality print. Students will observe a 3D Printer during each lesson to learn proper 3D printing standards and processes, all while creating their own models that will be printed for them. The course ends with students taking home their own accounts so they may continue modeling at home, along with at least 4 model prints they designed themselves during their time with us. View flyer.
