Maker Workshop for kids @ Fablab Winterthur

Just before the Christmas holiday, I helped Dorit and Christian @Fablab Winterthur for a maker workshop with kids. Christian recently wrote a code for a 3D printer to print cookie cutters. He prepared all the instructions on a nice piece of paper. All the kids who attended the workshop had one. The session started with us sharing some examples with them and helping them creating  their own designs. They all chose different designs and executed their designs on computers using  Inkscape software and exported the designs using Christian’s code to Cura. It was a great experience for kids to see their 2D drawings shaping into 3D objects.

Fablab Winterthur runs various workshops for kids and adults. Please find more information here: http://www.fablabwinti.ch/kurse/kalender/
