What you'll learn in this cad class:

Calling all young innovators! Welcome to your summer of creation.

In this 5-day camp, participants have the opportunity to explore the entire creative process from invention to fabrication, from idea to finished product. Students will work directly with professionals in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) fields and have the amazing experience of spending a week working in a real-world maker setting.

Day 1 of Design and Build begins by introducing young innovators to the world of computer aided design (CAD) and computer numerically controlled (CNC) machinery. By the end of the day, students will have learned the basics of digital design and programming, cornerstones of the Maker Movement. 

On Day 2
, students learn how to use laser cutters, 3D printers, and a vinyl cutter to start turning their designs into physical products. These three machines are incredibly versatile – they keep up with the most active imaginations and can help bring a multitude of ideas to life! 

Days 3–5 lead students through the production process as they create their own projects and work with their instructor to realize their creations. 

Participants who successfully pass this course are certified to use the Universal laser cutters, Makerbot Replicator 2 3D printers, and the CNC vinyl cutter at TechShop.
