Special Content: Repraps for Education

This is part of a series of posts about starting and facilitating a project-based 3D printer club at a local elementary school, with the ultimate goal of replicating the program at schools everywhere. We'll be posting as many details as possible, including lesson plans and supporting materials. For more information about the entire project, including a listing of posts related to it, please visit the 3D Printer Club for Schools project page. 

Today we tested some basic CAD instruction out on a fifth grader very much like the kind we hope to see in the 3D printer club that we want to start at the local school. We used TinkerCAD. The result was this very nice looking snowman. You can download and print it from thingiverse, or tinker it.

Greetings Maker Faire North Carolina Attendees! It was fun speaking with many of you today. Here is a collection of links to bots and technologies that I spoke about:

StickBot (the simple 6-legged walking robot)

SphereBot (the bot that draws onto ping pong balls, eggs, etc)
