Introduction to 3D Printing & Modeling (Age 9-11)

Openday162 11


Language: English

Kids and teens of this generation are all 3D natives. From Minecraft to 3D movies, children are surrounded by 3D images and animation from a young age. Spatial thinking capabilities are a critical component of a child’s development.

This course is designed to introduce 3D modeling and printing techniques to the 3D natives. Specifically catered to beginners, we start with an introduction of 3D modeling, navigating through the interface of TinkerCad, a beginner friendly 3D modeling software.

The course then covers 3D design elements and principles, dissects how 3D printer works, and moves into modeling more complex structures.

The camp finishes with a complete 3D product which is printed out for kids to take home.

8:1 Ratio Guarantee

We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.

Personalized Learning

Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.

Hands-on Project-based Learning

First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
