Stories in 3D: Adventures in Storytelling and 3D Printing

For Rising 4th to 7th Graders

Many of the stories we know and love take place in worlds quite different from our own. From enchanted forests to cities overrun by superheroes and super villains, these worlds often begin in our own imaginations, and can be difficult to express just using words. This summer, get out of your head and into a collaborative workshop as we mix storytelling with 3D modeling at MODA’s Stories in 3D camp!

We’re flipping creative writing on its head and starting with setting rather than characters. Working together, campers will construct imaginary worlds. Using some of our favorite books and movies as inspiration, we’ll discuss what makes each world work, how they differ from our own, and the way we experience them. With writing exercises and sketches in hand, campers will be introduced to CAD design using Tinkercad. Once they feel comfortable with the basics of the program, they will be tasked to design an aspect of their collaborative world. Campers will receive feedback on their project, and complete multiple iterations before finalizing their designs. Following camp, each model will be printed out and mailed to the camper to share with family and friends.

Campers will:

  • Learn how to craft a rich backdrop to their stories by imagining complete worlds and universes.

  • Strengthen effective storytelling (both through words and visual cues)

  • Explore aspects of set design and visualization 3D modeling and other materials

  • Develop Design Thinking mindsets.
