BE A MAKER CLUB
Learn to create models for 3D printing
At Be A Maker Club, we want to ignite the curiosity and passion for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) subjects in young minds through the exciting world of Computer-Aided Design and 3D printing. We firmly believe that STEAM education can be a thrilling journey, and we're dedicated to making it accessible and engaging for all. We aim to empower the next generation of innovators, engineers, and problem solvers by providing them with the tools and knowledge they need to turn their creative ideas into reality.
Why 3D Printing?
Learning about 3D printing encourages young minds to unleash their creativity. It’s a canvas where they can turn their wildest ideas into tangible objects. This hands-on approach to design and innovation empowers them to think outside the box and find innovative solutions to real-world problems.
Practical Problem Solving
3D printing equips young people with practical problem-solving skills. They learn to dissect complex issues into manageable parts, design solutions, and bring them to life. These skills are invaluable for tackling challenges in any STEM field and beyond.
As our world becomes increasingly tech-driven, understanding 3D printing technology is vital. It demystifies the advanced tools used in various industries and enables young learners to adapt to a tech-savvy world. They gain a deeper understanding of how technology shapes our daily lives.
Learning about 3D printing instills an entrepreneurial spirit in young individuals. They can design and create products, prototypes, and inventions. This fosters a sense of ownership and encourages them to explore opportunities in the world of startups and innovation.
3D printing promotes sustainability. Young people can design products with minimal waste, and they become more conscious of the environmental impact of manufacturing. This knowledge contributes to a generation that cares about sustainable practices.
Understanding 3D printing enhances career readiness. It prepares young people for jobs in STEM-related fields, including design, engineering, and manufacturing. Employers value practical skills, and 3D printing experience is a strong asset on a resume.
Empower young minds with CAD and 3D printing
We’ve worked on improving the lives of over 10,000 young people through in-person maker practice.
Our unique pedagogical model encourages young people to make 3D objects as a way to learn STEM. Research conducted by Claremont McKenna College shows that 46% of our students are girls and 100% of them said they had fun and would keep making.
Our numbers that speak
We Teach Design
Our instruction teaches the basics of product design. We detail the process it takes to turn an idea into a physical product.
We Teach Engineering
We cover the key concepts of mechanical engineering and digital design as they are applied to 3D modeling.
We Teach Computer Aided Design
Our students learn to use CAD software like TinkerCAD, Fusion360. Shapr, Solidworks, Blender and OnShape.
We Teach 3D Printer Operation
Learn how to assemble a 3D printer, tips for maintenance, and the right types of filaments and resins to choose for fabrication.
