Description

Class Experience

Students will create a box or container using TinkerCAD 3D design software.  Designs will be able to be saved as a .STL file which is compatible with most 3D printers in conjunction with a splicer program.  
I have taught students in 3rd-5th grade the basics of TinkerCad for several years as part of an interdisciplinary project at my brick and mortar school.  I recently presented about this project at the Texas Computer Educators Association Convention in 2020.
Learners are encouraged to continue using TinkerCAD and creating desigins.
Please create an account at TinkerCAD.com  Sometimes the kid version of the account takes a while to verify.  This class does NOT use a class code function and every student will need a free account.  

TinkerCAD is COPPA Compliant resource see this article for more information: https://blog.tinkercad.com/2013/07/30/whats-up-with-education-accounts.  If a temporary account is needed while waiting for a parent-approved account for kids under 13 please message me for information.  These temporary accounts will be deleted without notice frequently to ensure student safety and to comply with Outschool standards. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Teacher will give feedback to learners who are willing to share their designs to help them make sure their projects are right for printing.  Teacher cannot guarantee the quality of the print, only make helpful suggestions on good practices for designing for printing.  Please note every printer is different and troubleshooting printers in outside the scope of this course.  I can share some helpful information with you if needed,  just send me a message here on OS. 
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will be free to design their own projects and while a Box is recommended some students choose to make their own projects.  If you would be upset by your student creating something different than the dedicated project please speak with your learner before class.   

Although this class is dedicated to creating personalized boxes, from time to time one design sparks an idea for another, so it  kids get inspired.  As a teacher who values creativity I support students in their personal goals as long as it does not distract from the rest of the class I am happy to support these alternate designs.    If your learner has a different project they know they would like to work on or need one on one help with please see my one on one tutoring class or message me for information.
