Middle School sessions are from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Middle School sessions are open to grades 6-8.
Fifteen students will attend two three-hour sessions on consecutive Friday mornings. The first day will consist of creating their custom light design, 3D modeling, and 3D printing the base. The second day will involve engraving their designs on acrylic and assembling the electronic components to light up their part.
They will learn three software solutions that are commonly used in the industry for designing and manufacturing products: Fusion 360, Prusa Slicer, and Adobe Illustrator. The end product will be an acrylic panel with a custom engraved picture that sits on a 3D printed stand and lights up when powered via USB.
