Ages 7 to 12 – Space is Limited, Register Now!

NEW CURRICULUM FOR 2018!

Join us on the FOREFRONT of one of technology’s fastest growing trends… 3D Printing, Modeling & Modding!

With a technology that allows us to create and print prototypes wherever a 3D Printer can be plugged in, this industry is already changing the world we live in, and will have a huge impact in the future! We are beginning to see amazing new developments in the medical field (prosthetics), car industry (designing/printing cars and parts), aerospace technology, and the purchasing/printing of products for use in the home, just to name a few…

Using Autodesk 123D Design and cutting-edge 3D printers, our campers have the opportunity to 3D model prototypes, mod existing designs, and print them in 3D!

At 3D Printing Camp, campers learn about scalability, and how designs can be easily uploaded and printed for mass consumption. With this in mind, we ask campers to design two main projects and one additional, smaller project.  

Some Examples Include:

A Model Car: The Auto Industry is huge, and they are now beginning their exploration into 3D Modeling & Printing Automobiles! Here’s your chance to 3D model your own car design, and print it in 3D!

A Favorite Tool/Resource Item from Minecraft: To practice your design skills, and celebrate your love for Minecraft™, you can now 3D Model and print your favorite object/resource, or create a totally new one that does not exist in Minecraft… but should!

A Free Choice Object for Astronauts to Print in Space: The Space Industry is experimenting with 3D Printers that can print in spaceships at zero gravity.  Just think… we can 3D model objects on Earth and beam them up to space for consumption.  This is much more convenient than packing everything at once, and is super helpful if the astronauts forget something – important tools, toiletry items, and/or gadgets. This can also help accelerate the building of parts for the International Space Station. At camp, you can be a rocket scientist… what would you 3D Model and send them?

Campers can also transform models made out of clay to 3D printed versions using our panoramic photo-technology and 3D Printing software!  This option is available when developing your object from Minecraft™ or for Space.

Campers also learn about the 3D Printer itself, and how to operate, clean, and care for the machine.

A Friday Showcase will take place around 2:45pm and campers will present their projects to the camp. Parents are welcome to attend!

 

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Much More than just Printing:  We are not just printing objects… we are conceptualizing, designing, customizing, modding, and optimizing!

Make An Impact: Any design for 3D Printing could go viral and make a difference to millions of people one day! This summer, we are exploring 3D Modeling in the Auto Industry and Space Industry!

Stay at the Forefront: 3D Printing is a blue ocean of untapped opportunities, and you can jump right in!

Have a Blast Inventing: When creating 3D models and printing prototypes, you are inventing! What’s more fun than doing it with a group of friends at camp? In addition, we have a fun and creative project from Minecraft – design/print your favorite object/resource or create your own!

Showcase & Take Home:  Our Friday showcase is your time to shine – show off your prototype, discuss its benefits to society, and keep it – it’s yours!

Please note: Campers 3D model multiple projects each week, and take home at least one printed project (and a file with all of their designs.) Please have your child bring a USB drive to camp on Friday to copy all project files.

Footwear:  Closed-toe shoes/sneakers are required.

All Campers receive a Lavner Camps t-shirt and leave with a printed project and design files!

Please Note: Campers take projects created at 3D Printing Camp home and assume ownership of each project.

For Clay Models, the 3D photo process is very precise and printed models may not be exact representations.

Warning for Projects: Projects created by campers at 3D Printing Camp may be small in size, and may therefore pose a risk of choking or other harm.  These projects must be kept out of the reach of small children or anyone who has the tendency to put inedible objects in their mouth. All projects are created for the use of our campers ages 7 & up.


Campers may also attend Tech R3volution and Major in 3D Printing & Modeling at West Chester University – West Chester PA, New York Institute of Technology – Long Island NY, Vanderbilt University – Nashville TN, and UCLA – Los Angeles CA.


*For campers interested in 3D Printing Camp with Modeling, we also recommend our Computer Programming Camp with Python, Computer Programming Camp with Java, 3D Minecraft™ Camp – Innovation & Design, Graphic Design Camp, Filmmaking Camp, Robotics Camp, Robotics Camp with Artificial Intelligence, and TECH R3VOLUTION™.
