Homeschool Class

Here’s your hands-on opportunity to experience the fundamentals of graphic design, architecture, product development, and biological processes using a variety of open-source software applications, including Sketchup, Inkscape and Blender. We’ll spend 10 weeks using the MakersFactory machinery to 3-D print and laser-cut lamps, cards, toys, and stickers plus use the laptop computers onsite to create animations and models. Join us for this educational, fun-filled weekly class.

Enrichment Program @ Westlake Elementary

MakersFactory is heading off site! This is an mobile lab program with Westlake Elementary. We head over to WestLake and teach children after school ends.

Students will be learning how to create forms for 2-dimensional cutting using Inkscape (projects created will be laser cut offsite). Sketchup will be used to introduce students to 3D modeling and try their hands at architecture. Next we’ll use Blender to create models (for 3D extrusion printing) and an animation. Depending on time, we’ll have an opportunity to explore arduino-based robots.

Start: March 6, 2013 3:00 pm
