Creator Academy is proud to launch a one-of-a-kind 3D printing club designed for kids starting in 2021.
This course teaches essential health and safety procedures when working on and around complex machines like 3D printers. It encourages students to be mindful of their surroundings and to respect machinery that can cause burns and injuries if not carefully observed.
For children 9-10 years old, this course is designed to show students the wonderful technology of 3D printing.
Using 3D printers is not like using a normal printer! There are many factors including 3D printer maintenance, temperature, control and safety that goes into making a successful 3D printed object.
This course involves usage of machine and cleaning tools that require the utmost care and cooperation from students.
Benefits of the course include:
- Learning about 3D printing hardware and technology
- Understanding 3D printer techniques and technical terms.
- Learning how to safely operate and maintain a 3D printer.
- Students may take successful (and unsuccessful!) 3D printed objects home.
