Intro to 3D Printers, Laser Cutters, and CAD Applications, Grades K-12 

In this session, participants will learn to develop 2D and 3D models using CAD (computer aided design) applications - such as Sketchup, TinkerCAD, and ProEngineer - and CAM (computer aided manufacturing) equipment with rapid prototyping applications, including 3D plastic printers and laser cutters/engravers.  This session will be held in the School of Engineering’s 3D studios, where participants will learn how to use the software and equipment from the ground up, starting with introductory lessons on the computers and various pieces of equipment, before working in teams on real-world design challenges to create, prototype, test and redesign their 3D solutions.

Trainers include Chris Anderson and Chris Better
