Program Description

Event Details

Learn the fundamentals of 3D design and prototyping in this educational program. In this two-hour session we will create our own 3D designs using Autodesk Tinkercad, a free, browser-based 3D design software. After we've completed our designs, over the coming days library staff will 3D print your parts. Return to the library to retrieve your parts and assemble your own potato. Place your completed potato head on display in the library's Teen Zone, or take it home to place on display and impress your friends!

Please bring your own keyboard, mouse, and internet enabled device if available. We will have a limited number of laptops and library computers for program participants. Please let us know ahead of time if you will need us to provide you with a device.
