Ages 7-14

Join us at MODA and make functional lamps and lanterns with with circuits and 3D printing!

Join us at MODA for Computer-Aided Design (CAD), 3D printing and hands-on circuit building to make your own unique, functioning lanterns and illuminated creations. This camp combines electrical engineering and 3D design for an interdisciplinary STEAM experience. At this camp, you’ll learn principles of electrical engineering. Campers will use the design process to make LED circuits and render 3D models of lanterns or other objects light up. Participants will also learn about 3D printers and how use run them. Campers will take home their circuits after the camp, and MODA will 3D print participants’ model which will be available for pick-up in two to three weeks.
Campers Will:

  • Develop skills in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) programs

  • Learn introductory principles of Electrical Engineering

  • How to Build Circuits from Scratch

  • Use CAD programs to create simple solids and complex figures

  • Be introduced to 3D printing

  • Improve 3D printing skills

  • Develop design and engineering skills


Cost:

Members: $65/ Non-members: $75

Please note camp member discounts apply only to MODA Sustaining Membership levels beginning at $8/month or $96/year and above. For more information about memberships or to join, visit museumofdesign.org/membership/ or contact membership@museumofdesign.org.
