An Introduction to 3D Printing

This workshop was a collaboration between Screen Savvy Kids and Worcester Think Tank. Students were introduced to 3D printing with a focus on expressing one's self through the graphic design of original objects and logos. Using a media literacy framework designed to engage students' critical thinking and communication skills, classes frequently used storytelling and storyboarding to compliment objects and designs created. Students in the class were introduced to computer aided design (CAD), 2D and 3D perspective drawing, 3D printing methods, and basic geometric principles such as perimeter, area and volume. The open source resources utilized included: Thingiverse, 123D Design, and MakerBot (see links provided).
