3D Printing for Kids

 

The Design Bar in the MODA lobby is a great place to exercise your creativity and learn about 3D Printing!

Our Minecraft and 3D printing class lets kids aged 8-15 take their Minecraft skills to the next level. They’ll learn to design for 3 dimensions by creating an object and they’ll learn about 3D printing. We’ll print their creation on one of our 3D Printers – due to print times, items will be ready for pick-up within a few days.

3D Printing from Minecraft ages 8-12

In these classes, you will:

  • learn to use Minecraft as a design tool
  • learn to design for 3D printing
  • learn about principles and concepts of design and engineering
  • learn about 3D printing, its materials & its processes
  • go home with skills you can use over and over 

After the class, we’ll 3D print your creation so you can keep it. Due to print times, items will be ready for pick-up within a few days.
