Programme Synopsis The programme will introduce children to the marvelous world of 3D printing, combining art and technology together. It will introduce them to the concept of STEAM at an early age. The course had been successfully piloted in preschools since 2019 and was an innovation project supported by ECDA. It allows children to explore their ideas through 3D designs and see these come become creation through 3D prints. We also let children explore regular patterns and irregular patterns to see how they can tessellate different designs. Children can also get to plan their own designs and see these being printed. Through the course, we hope to inspire children on the possibilities of 3D print and design.

Cost is based on 4 sessions. Price range per student is based on class size. The course can be extended to up to 8 sessions with more 3D design activities. Cost will be adjusted accordingly. Per hour course is for optional teachers training session to guide teachers to continue project on their own. Note that it is recommended for school to have its own 3D printer to continue project by themselves. For the purpose of the course, a 3D printer will be loaned to the school when needed for use during the sessions. We are also able to use the school's 3D printers if it has these.
