Course Levels

Level 1 - The Basics of Engineering

Throughout this unit, students will be exposed to robots and the Engineering Design Process. The goal of the kit is to encourage students to explore robotics and coding through play. Students will work to solve a problem by identifying the problem, asking questions, and imaging how they can help solve the problem.

Level 2 - Introduction to 3D

In this kit, students will embark on the study of 3D printing by examining an object print and exploring the printer’s movement. Using small toys, they will investigate the various shapes that comprise an object and break those shapes down into a 3D model. Given two separate engineering challenges, students will first create an object and promote it to the class in a class challenge, and then work in groups to create a class biome with both 3D prints and other materials. This jam-packed unit culminates by asking students to pitch their own project for printing.

Level 3 - 3D Printing & Materials

The lessons in this unit will support instructors as they introduce students to the process, potential, and products of 3D printing. Beginning with a conceptual understanding and moving towards 3D printing with purpose, these lessons will support both instructor and student as they make their way into this exciting realm. The lessons have a rich mix of manipulative activities, building 3D items in modeling software, and engineering challenges. Students will track their learning through an engineering journal.

Level 4 - Designing Structures

In this kit, students will learn to design structures to solve everyday problems. Using a variety of brainstorming techniques, students will identify a problem, empathize with someone a!ected by the problem, then prototype a solution. These solutions will be created using simple 3D-design software. Once the ideas are generated, students will use 3D printers to rapid-prototype and test their ideas. Creativity, problem solving, failure, and feedback are all part of this project. At the conclusion, students will pitch their ideas to the class using a version of NBC’s “Shark Tank.” The larger group will then vote on the best ideas! Winning products can be outsourced for final fabrication or rewarded in another creative way..
