Program Overview

Our maker programs focus on creating physical objects and devices with digital tools and technologies. We have offered a wide range of programs to schools, which we can implement on-premise or via remote learning platforms.

Create a radio transmission device by 3D printing and micro:bit coding

 

• How to use physical computers to solve problems

• How to program Micro:bits using the Make code programming environment
• How to design enclosures in Tinkercad that can fit electronic components inside
• How to use Bluetooth to search for the proximity to an object

Assistive Living Devices

Apply the design thinking framework to create devices to help the elderly or physically-challenged with their daily lives

 

• Understand that Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) is the most widely used method of 3D printing, and this technology is used in the 3D pens and printers in this course
• Understand how rapid prototyping can be achieved using 3D printers
• Recognize the main components of a 3D pen and a desktop 3D printer, and to use these tools in a safe and responsible manner
• Have a basic knowledge of different 3D modeling techniques and be able to create, move, manipulate and edit objects in Tinkercad, a free, web-based CAD program
• Understand how design considerations can impact the success of a 3D print and apply these considerations to maximize efficiency and accuracy of their own 3D prints
