STEM | 3D Engineering

Innovative Summer Camps and Classes | Ages 9-18
Join us for a fun and innovative STEM education in 3D engineering technology. Our unique program shows students how to translate thoughts into reality by building things with computers using the powerful and intuitive 3D CAD (computer-aided design) software. Utilizing engineering methodology and industry standards, students can improve spatial intelligence and critical thinking skills by developing a scientific and engineering mindset with active hands-on experiences. Improve high school and college readiness. Give students a head start and an advantage in life. Register for summer camps and classes today.
Spatial intelligence is the ability to think in three dimensions. It is a technique that finds meaning in the shape, size, orientation, location, direction of objects, or the relative positions in space of multiple objects or structures. Our CAD workstations include HP Elitebook 12" touchscreen laptops, HP 27" LCD monitors, state-of-the-art Creo Parametric and hand-sketching Sketchbook software programs, Wacom stylus, 3D mouse, 3-button wireless mouse, PLA 3D printers, step-by-step color workbooks, and digital calipers.
