STEAM: Parent and Child 3D Printing SBU

THIS COURSE IS FOR YOUTH AGES 8-17 ONLY AND PARENTS/GUARDIANS

Thanks to 3D printing, you can quickly and easily create a physical object from a computer model, literally printing the part as it goes. This is an easy way to prototype your parts before machining or injection molding.

Learn how to import, prepare, and print your three-dimensional (3D) parts using the PrintrBot Simple Printer.

We will also cover 3D printer hardware, software and parameters, and troubleshooting for common personal printers. By the end of session, you will have all the information and knowledge necessary to use this machine for all your 3D printing needs.

The class will print a small part, but due to the short length of class, not everybody will have a part to take home. Each slot in this course is for 1 parent/guardian and 1 child. Both students will be certified on our tools. To sign up, use the website to enroll the parent/guardian and pay, and then call the TechShop Front Desk to enroll the youth maker.

Project: Keychain

Prerequisite: None

Equipment access: PrintrBot 3D printer

Minimum age: 8

Supervision requirements: When using the 3D printer outside of class time, members 8–12 years of age must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian who has passed the SBU.
