Students at Green Valley Elementary celebrated Art Day today in 3D. North Ridge Middle School student council students that participate in NRMS makerspace taught Green Valley Elementary students how to use Tinkercad, a CAD (computer aided design) application. Students learned how to manipulate 3D objects, scale objects, create holes in 3D objects, create rings and letters, and export objects to print on a 3D printer. Scholars spent time creating a 3D object with a partner and learned how to export files for 3D printing and share files on Thingverse. Students also learned how industries such as the medical, fashion, aviation, and construction industry are using 3D printers to create objects to solve real world problems. Finally, students learned about local library programs that can assist students and provide 3D printing access.
