3D Studio: Modeling and Animation


Students will be introduced to 3D modeling software (Inventor) with project based learning activities that we will incorporate into a 3D printer to print out final designs.  Camper participation in the form of hands on design and questioning, independent designs and peer tutoring will be encouraged. During the course of 4 days, campers will design a project from start to finish that will be printed and taken home.
