Summer camps kicked off this morning in the AT&T Classroom with Junior Adventures in Coding, Programming and Design. Across the week, the children will explore a variety of digital tools for designing and programming animations, stories, games, and other digital media. This morning the campers were introduced to the design process for 3D printing using two applications - Makerbot Printshop and My Minifactory. Both platforms offer templates for creating and customizing creatures, figurines, medallions, and jewelry. Makerbot Printshop also offers a Shape Maker tool that children can use to create a 3D model from their own hand-made drawing by capturing a photo of the drawing and importing the image into the tool. The children’s projects will be printed using a MakerBot Replicator Mini 3D printer and an XYZprinting da Vinci Jr. 1.0 Pro. 3D Printer.
