3D Design and Printing

My 3rd grade students are excited to be learning about 3D design and printing. They are following the “Let’s Learn Tinkercad” tutorials in Project Ignite. Once they have completed the tutorials the next step will be to start the design process. We are thrilled to be participating in the Star Trek Replicator Challenge this year. Their challenge will be to design a non-edible food related object for astronauts to 3D print in the year 2050. I can’t wait to see what my students come up with and will be sure to share photos once everything has been printed!makerbot-replicator-mini1
