Welcome to 3D Printing for Elementary School Students!
This manual comprises five lesson plans that serve as a learning base for designing in 3D space and 3D printing, geared towards students from Grades One through Five. These lessons serve as a useful primer to a basic Computer Aided Design (CAD) course in programs such as Tinker CAD. This manual is suitable for after-school and summer STEAM programs, or as an enrichment project in elementary school. The manual includes instruction to aid student improvement on their math and English Language skills.
Included in this manual are five, one-hour long lessons, as well as supplementary materials and presentation slides to accompany each lesson. The essential vocabulary words students must know are highlighted at the beginning of each lesson.
