3d Design Workshop For Middle School Students
We are a comprehensive school of applied sciences, technology and research.
The Center for K12 STEM Education at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering is pleased to announce the NEW Autodesk Fusion 360 3D Design Workshop for spring 2018. This free 10 session weekend program is for NYC middle school students who are currently in 7th or 8th grade.
Starting February 17th up to 24 students will be introduced to 3D modeling, design, simulation and animation by providing a cross disciplinary approach to rendering real world objects. Students will work on a long-term design challenge as they advance from 2D sketches, to Tinkercad and Fusion 360 software.
The curriculum will steadily challenge the students from session to session, introducing a new skill set and deeper understanding of the software's tools and capabilities. Use of the NYU MakerSpace and it's collection of 3D printers and LASER cutter will figure prominently in the workshop.
If your interested - Apply Here – Students will be notified of acceptances by February 1st.
