3D Printing Workshop for High School Students: Registration Open

The UNMC Makers 3D Printing Club, in collaboration with the Omaha Do Space, will provide hands-on instruction in 3D design and printing for local high students to promote innovation and STEM learning. This crash course will cover 3D design, 3D printing, intellectual property and open source.

Who should participate: High school students across the Omaha Metro area. Teachers, please encourage your students to sign up and participate!

Project timeline: Participating students would need to register teams of 3-4 students by December 11. Students will attend a 50 minute introductory seminar on December 12 at 5pm at the Do Space where they will be given project details and an introduction to intellectual property and open source designs. Students will then brainstorm ideas and will return for a second 90 minute seminar (with a break in the middle) during the week of January 8 at Do Space (evening, TBD) for a crash course on 3D design and printing. Students will then have until the end of February 3 to print a functional product. The UNMC Makers will be available to provide hands-on assistance weekly (evening, TBD) during this month-long process.
