This class does not include 3D CAD design. This introductory 3D printing class will go over how to use the Makerbot 3D printers and the software associated with them. You will learn how to prepare a 3D model for printing, resources to acquire 3D models, as well as the programs available to create 3D models.
Laser cutting and engraving is a very versatile process used to cut or engrave numerous materials including wood, leather, acrylic, anodized aluminum, Formica, and even mother of pearl. It can also be used engrave and mark some metals, marble, and stone to create a variety of projects. The laser cutter excels even with fine, intricate work.
WINTER CAMP 2018 - Design Thinking + Bose Speaker Cube Build
TWO IMPORTANT NOTES:
1) This camp will be held only if we get at least 5 campers (tuition is refundable)
2) This camp requires an Apple Device for assembly of the kit. (the speaker can be used by any bluetooth device after assembly)
age: 8yrs - 15years
Campers in this camp will learn about the Design Thinking Process and also learn about electromagnets and how speakers work. Campers will then build a Bose Speaker Cube that they take home.
This camp has two sections. The first is design thinking. Design Thinking is a design methodology that provides a solution-based approach to solving problems. Students will learn about the 5 stages in the process: empathise, define, ideate, prototype, and test. The learning will be backed up by hands-on projects.
During the second section campers will learn about magnets and electromagnets, how sound works, how a speaker works, frequency and waveforms. The campers will then assemble a Bose Cube speaker that they can take home after the class.
Requires an Apple mobile Device for discovery and build activities:
Compatible with the following devices (for music listening):
