GoldieBlox Workshops for Girls

GoldieBlox is a construction toy meant to keep girls interested in building and inventing.

At MODA, we think girls are awesome engineers and so we’re offering GoldieBlox building workshops for girls aged 6-9.

Girls will spend some time getting familiar with the tools in the GoldieBlox set and then work together to design and build a working machine!

Kids: Make & 3D Print Superhero Logos or Spaceships

A workshop for kids aged 8-15 that provides an introduction to designing in 3D space. A MODA Instructor will guide students through the process of creating an objectbefore printing it out on a Makerbot© Replicator© 2 Desktop 3D Printer.

Using Tinkercad, an easy-to-use 3D design software, they’ll learn how to manipulate basic shapes, symbols and texts. Your child will leave the class with a 3D print (in some cases, these may have to be picked up later due to print time) and a basic knowledge of 3D design.

Participation is $25 for Members, $30 for non-Members. For dates and registration, click here.

Young Explorers: 3D Printing from Minecraft

Do you have a child who loves to play Minecraft? In Minecraft, kids are able to build anything they can imagine! Our Young Explorers class lets kids aged 8-15 take that to the next level.

Working in Minecraft, they’ll design a 3D object and then print it on a Makerbot® Replicator® 2 Desktop 3D Printer and take it home (in some cases, these may have to be picked up later due to print time).

Participation is $25 for Members, $30 for non-Members.
