Kids Learn To Make Mechanical Parts At 3D Printing Camp

There’s something about seeing kids making things that just makes you think, “the future’s going to be fine.”

Here are some shots from the 3D Design/Printing workshop “On the Move”, hosted by MakerBot and NYU-Poly last week. MakerBot education wizards Liz Arum and Jon Santiago1  were there to show kids ages 10-13 how to use free modeling software and a MakerBot to make mechanical parts like gears for larger moving objects.
