What's Included

Your kids won’t believe how fun this class is! We’ll focus on computer-aided design (CAD), 3D modeling and printing. Students take home real objects they have created to show off to friends and family. They’ll learn to design their own 3D models from scratch using software programs such Google Sketchup and Tinkercad, or download models already created. Campers will make pretty cool objects, such as toys, jewelry, statues, iPhone/iPod covers and more. Models will be printed using a 3D printer. Students get a solid understanding of advanced science and technology concepts related to prototyping and how the technology is being used in architecture, art, design, medicine, science, mapping, and manufacturing. Instructor: Michelle Archer (Maker Space Coordinator)

About This Organizer

The Swain School is a place where children - ages three (Preschool) through 8th grade - can be known and appreciated, and can experience a wide variety of opportunities, in the classroom and out.


Our well-trained faculty are experts in how to teach, so they can give each child what he or she needs, at any given moment in their development.


We work closely with families, communicating frequently about their children and life at the school. We encourage volunteering, and provide educational opportunities for the adults in our Swain families.


Our beautiful campus sits on 20 wooded acres in Salisbury Township, with plenty of outdoor areas for play and learning. Our facilities include The Imaginate Center (which houses our Makerspace program); state of the art tech spaces; dedicated facilities for music, theatre, and visual arts; a full-size gym/performing arts center; welcoming library; cafeteria and commons rooms; and numerous bright and cheerful classrooms.


Our community includes over 300 students who live in 20 area school districts. Most of the districts provide bus service for Swain students at no charge.
