3D Printing Product Design Ages – 11-15
Price varies by location (includes $49 lab fee)
Recomended students complete 3D printing beginner camp or have had previous experience
One of the hottest new trends, 3D printing is perfect for prototyping, CAD development skills, and is just plain fun!
3D printers work by following a computer’s digital instructions to “print” an object using materials such as plastic, ceramics and metal. The printing process involves building up an object one layer at a time until it’s complete. For instance, some 3D printers squirt out a stream of heated, semi-liquid plastic that solidifies as the printer’s head moves around to create the outline of each layer within the object.
Product Design Course
Cost $349 (Includes $49 Lab Fee)
Students will utilize their learning from week 1 to design 3D products based on challenges, problems or to develop a new product! This week is dedicated to giving the students freedom to design and test the 3D printer. Students will be asked to share their ideas through a daily Blog which parents can follow everyday online. Some past projects include: A new Playground project, 3 level Dollhouse, interchangeable color Bowties with clips, Board Games, Birdfeeders and a fashion Key Chain product line!
ALL 3D DESIGNED AND PRINTED PRODUCTS WILL BE TAKEN HOME BY CAMPERS!

Forms & Resources
Getting ready for camp should be an exciting process for your entire family. Many families attend multiple camps throughout the summer. For your convenience we have posted our Welcome Packet in the form of a parent newsletter on-line in PDF format. This document covers everything from Club SciKidz policies to camp dates and security issues.
The Welcome Packet mentions an ‘Administration of Medicine Form’. If your child requires any medications during the time he/she is at the camp, please download this form and print it, fill in the required information, and bring it with the child on the first day of camp.
Online Camp Evaluation
After camp is completed, please take the time to complete our online survey. The survey is instrumental in providing feedback so we can continue to make Club SciKidz the best science and technology camp it can be!
