From July 11-15, the Southeastern Center of Robotics Education, or SCORE, hosted introductory and intermediate 3D printing and design camps, giving elementary school students an opportunity to engage in creativity while developing software, engineering and design skills through active learning and print projects.

Held at Auburn University’s Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum, the camps were divided into two groups—an introductory-level camp designed for students who had little to no experience with 3D printing and an intermediate-level camp for those who had some prior experience with 3D printing through attending a previous camp or having used a 3D printer at home.

In each camp, students utilized the engineering design process throughout the week to solve everyday problems using CAD modeling and 3D printers in an exciting hands-on experience with innovative technology.
