TinkerCAD Engineering 3D Design Camp #1 (Summer Theme Designs Ages 8-13)

Great 4 week class for young engineers who love Minecraft and Roblox but are looking to use their skills in a more practical way for creating and 3D printing with free TinkerCAD 3D design software.

Description

Class Experience

Learners will become familiar with the engineering design process and gain confidence using TinkerCAD and sharing their work with others. 
After 11 years of teaching I have become skilled at redirecting students when accidental inappropriate comments have been made during brainstorming or internet searching.  
Additionally, I have been working specifically with TinkerCad for about 4 years with students at my brick and mortar school in an interdisciplinary enrichment class.  I have also presented about using Tinkercad to the Texas Computer Educators Association in February 2020 as part of a workshop highlighting our Game design project. 
Each week we will have some kind of design challenge that we will work on during class after reviewing the previous weeks designs.  Learners are encouraged to continue the work at home on their own time to complete their design for the next week's sharing session.
Learners will need an individual TinkerCad account from TinkerCad.com.  It would be beneficial for learners to have a notebook to document their work.  

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:
Informal assessments from the teacher and peer feedback via the Harvard Protocol.  
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will be utilizing TinkerCad 3D design software which includes a search function to search projects other designers have shared.  As with any search engine, I have no control over what learners will search for or what may come up.  Please discuss with your learners before class appropriate search terms and what to do in case something inappropriate should be returned unintentionally.  We will also discuss this in class. As an option we may use break out rooms.  If you would not like your learner to be part of a team using a break out room please inform me before the first class so I can make sure to plan accordingly.  
We will use individual accounts on Tinkercad.com  Students may wish to have a designers notebook or paper to hand sketch ideas, journal, or document progress.
