Week 2 of Make Academy: Transform It

During the second week of camp we made more progress towards creating our 3D prints, by using the online program TinkerCAD. This costless program creates a simpler 3D CADing process by using pre-made building blocks, similar to the blocks the campers used to make their figures. To get acquainted with using TinkerCAD the campers were given a task of creating their times out of the rudimentary shapes.

After, the campers used TinkerCAD to reconstruct and scale down the figures they made last week.

Later that afternoon, the campers continued the construction of their storage boxes. The addition to the lesson this week was to teach them how to use a jigsaw in order to but a bottom for their boxes. After they finished constructing the boxes, they had the option to make it unique by adding handles and compartments.
