Dream It, Design It, 3D Print It - Flexible Schedule (No Live Meetings)
Bright & Smart ~ Engineering Skills for Kids
Learners will be introduced to 3D printing concepts and to a Modeling Platform to design, build, test, and debug 3D objects in this flexible schedule session. Students will build a simple 3D object and test its feasibility to be printable.
This class is a discovery class where the only requirement is a passion for learning, creating, and collaborating. The material will be posted weekly, and you can view it during the week at your convenience. In this online course, each student will: - Be guided through various techniques with videos that I have been pre-recorded, along with quizzes and assessments. - Receive unlimited access to the PowerPoint presentations used in class. - Participate in a class at their own time with other...
Students learn to pay attention to detail, think critically, and be patient by designing and modeling simple solid objects.
Bright & Smart started in 2005. We have been teaching and developing our programs for the past 15 years. We create our programs with students' learning experience in mind; we want them to learn to love STEM and develop their higher cognitive skills and natural abilities; we help them see themselves as technology creators.
Homework OfferedThere will be 4 worksheets/quizzes on the powerpoints with activities available to answer and discuss as a group. Homework will be assigned weekly and is a combination of assignments, such as the rendering of a 3D object, the building of the object using building blocks, the design of such an object using the modeling platform, the object's slicing process, and preparing it for print. Students will be: - guided individually on how to improve on their work. - encouraged to submit their designs for review. - allowed to one-on-one instructor feedback live meeting before submitting their final project. Students will also practice their interpersonal skills using the Outschool classroom by posting their designs, hearing, and giving constructive feedback to each other designs.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedStudents that follow and complete the assignments and participate in the live meeting with the instructor will receive a 3D printed product of their own design. As soon as we receive the file by email, we will print it and ship it to you.
The class's price includes the printing and shipping of a 2"x2" model to your location in the USA. Once we receive the file, it might take up to one week to ship it to you. A notebook and pencil/pen to plan their projects and document their progress. macOS or Windows PC to run the application and test the student designs.
The application that we use to teach the 3D printing class requires signing up using an email account; please decide on your family's best option. SketchUp helps you visualize your ideas: The joy of drawing by hand. The ease of super-smart 3D modeling software. macOS or Windows PC to run the application.
Our goal at Bright & Smart is to teach kids basic Engineering and Computer Programming Skills and facilitate 21st Century Learning Skills, such as; Information & Media Literacy, Critical Thinking & Problem Solving, and Interpersonal &...
