3D modeling, design & printing teaches important STEAM concepts and design thinking. It helps unlock children’s natural drive to create, share and explore. We use easy to use, intuitive and engaging software to allow young students to transition from drawing in 2D to designing in 3D in minutes – no CAD or computer experience necessary! Students get to see their designs come to life through a 3D printer. Benefits of Design Thinking Teaching young students design thinking helps them develop a growth mindset and important problem solving, analytical and spatial thinking skills. Benefits include: - Ability to identify problems and convert them to actionable opportunities. - View setbacks and failures as valuable learning moments. - Develop self-belief as problem solvers. - Develop entrepreneurial mindset and understand value of collaboration and feedback. If student has taken 3D Modeling from Wize Academy in the past, curriculum and teacher will allow student to advance in their skills with new projects and challenges. If attending online, this class requires a computer with a broadband connection, as it is taken over a Zoom conference. If in-person, students are welcome to bring their own devices, which we find helps students extend the learning outside of camp. However, we will have options for them to use ours as well.
