Mobile 3D Printing Workshop for Schools and Groups 3-hour



Description

Duration: 3 hours for for Schools and Groups

We provide mobile classroom workshops across Australia and introduce hungry minds to the same 3D printing technology used by MIT students. We also introduce students to the creative and teamwork skills they’ll need to bring their ideas to life.

Protoworks Education is led by Hans Chang, a Radio Frequency Engineer with an MBA from UCLA Anderson. Having spent the past four years in Silicon Valley, helping giants like SanDisk bring new products to market, Hans injects his real-world experience into each workshop. This course is cross-disciplinary and promotes project-based learning. 

Step1: Schedule 

Book a private workshop and we'll be in touch to schedule a date & time that suits you. Reservation is typically made 1 week in advance. 

Step2: Set-up 

We’ll bring the expert, project plan and 3D printer to your school. You just need to supply the projector, Wi-Fi and a large classroom full of creative brains.

Step3: Minds-on

We explore the bits and bobs of 3D printing, like extruders and thermoplastic materials. We then check out CAD design, workflow, and why prototypes are so important.

Step4: Hands-on

We get stuck into a “Making-stuff” challenge. Working in small groups, we focus on developing design and teamwork skills- both key tools for our future innovators.

No prior experience in 3D printing is required 

Max of 24 participants for this workshop. Suitable for Year 7 and above
