3D Animation & Printing (ages 9-12)

3D animation

From designing and printing your own 3D characters and inventions, to animating an action-packed scene complete with realistic physics, the only limit in the futuristic world of 3D design is your imagination. Start with a stick figure and work your way up to:

  1. Build castles, spaceships, dream homes, cartoon characters, and more.
  2. Animate your creations to create your own 3D movie
  3. Make explosive action scenes with cutting-edge technology

A $25 materials fee includes one 3D-printed piece approx. 3in x 3in x 3in. The 3D-printed model will be selected from among the student’s creations during the camp. Instructor will assist and approve the final design for printing.

The class is designed for curious aspiring programmers and students need no prior experience in programming (although basic proficiency with computers is required).

Minecraft Hacking Club (ages 10-13)

 

Ever wanted to create your own in-game items for Minecraft, like blocks, tools, or armor? At the Minecraft Hacking Club, you’ll be able to invent all these things and more, coding your own customized version of Minecraft! By creating a Minecraft mod (short for “modification”) you can forge your own powerful, never-before-seen tools and armor; cook up your own food creations; and even shape your own Minecraft world generation! Minecraft mods are made through Java coding, but don’t worry, you don’t need to have any coding experience to join.


Please note: Students we receive their complete .jar file by request at the end of the club. They can upload this to their Minecraft game at home to use their custom items.


Each month-long course repeats a four-session curriculum; therefore, repeat students will be revisiting familiar material.
