This class is available in-person only. In-person students will be subject to our COVID procedures.
This course is designed to introduce students to materials science through the construction of a 3D printer and the exploration of items ultimately developed using the printer. In addition to building the 3D printer, students will complete a variety of projects using different materials and comparing their properties. This course will focus on building skills with an emphasis on creativity and critical thinking.
Cost: $750 + materials ($600)
Per 5-week session.
Materials include construction components for the 3D printer and materials required for project work. No additional materials are required for Session 2 after attending Session 1 (i.e., the total materials cost for both sessions is $600).
