At the intersection of technology, engineering and art, this class will get you "hands-on" with your tech. Learn the fundamentals of programming, circuitry, 3D design and 3D printing in a lively, project-driven environment. Team up and create something completely new, such as an electronic musical instrument, a kinetic art installation, a piece of interactive clothing or a computerized toy. Using TinkerCad, you’ll create masterpieces of your own designed for 3D printing. You’ll be led through a series of design challenges aimed at learning the limits of 3D technologies and be able to let your imagination run wild as you create your own designs. Enjoy the autonomy to freely design, build, test, and interact with your creations. Throughout this course, you’ll become familiar with SparkFun products while creating unique creations, limited only by your imagination. Building awesome stuff has never been more fun, or more approachable.
