What's Included

You step out of the shower, pull the curtain a bit too hard and a small plastic hook breaks off. You plug in your laptop charger with too much enthusiasm and crack the electrical outlet cover. You drop the remote and the battery cover breaks in two, sending your batteries flying. We all know that replacing these objects will be tedious and time consuming. There has to be a better way, right? Welcome to the world of 3D printing! Now’s your chance to design, draw and create anything your mind can imagine—from replacement parts to robot figures. This course will introduce the concepts of solid modelling and rapid prototyping, giving you hands-on experience working with real 3D printers located at the University of Toronto. Using small Makerbots and high-end rapid prototypers, you are sure to have something amazing to take home at the end of an action-packed week.

About This Organizer

The Engineering Student Outreach Office (ESOO), created in Fall 2009, manages and administers the core outreach programs offered by the Faculty. We act as the central unit for outreach activities promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education to a wide audience. We design and deliver programs centrally, and coordinate the activities by other entities including student organizations, Faculty members, and Departments. The vast majority of outreach activities supported by ESOO are pre-university programming.

The Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering is committed to inspiring youth within the community and across the world through outreach programming that focuses on engineering and applied sciences. These programs range from summer live-in programs to weekend courses during the fall and spring terms.
