Your imagination has a home in Tinkercad. This 3D world of fun shapes and colors allows you to create and print whatever you want– it’s all up to you. Tinkercad makes it easy for students to design accurate 3D models, whether they’re starting from scratch with their own ideas, browsing through Tinkercad’s community designs, or importing a model from Thingiverse. Dedicated to your students’ success, MakerBot provides these 3D printing resources to enhance STEAM learning and elevate creativity in your classroom.
After learning Tinkercad’s fundamentals, invite students to show you what they’ve learned with a challenge from MakerBot in the Classroom: the Make a Country Project. This project helps elementary school students explore geography and regional climates. Students use Tinkercad to design tiles that will join together to make a country. Each tile should represent water, land, mountains, and forest areas. They’ll have to create landscapes that resemble these features. Read on to learn how these essential Tinkercad lessons can come in handy for the Make a Country Project.
