Building to Code: 3D Printing and AP CS Principles with OpenSCAD

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Building to Code: 3D Printing and AP CS Principles with OpenSCAD is an Engineering-focused workshop that delivers Computational Thinking skills in the context of 3D Design and 3D printing. OpenSCAD is a declarative programming language that allows users to generate complex 3D models with text-based instructions. This hands-on workshop will introduce participants to basic operators and control structures in OpenSCAD, provide a collection of teacher resources to support instruction in OpenSCAD, and discuss how the AP Computer Science Principles Curriculum Framework might be delivered with OpenSCAD and 3D printing.

AP Computer Science Principles with OpenSCAD and 3D Printing provides teachers a pathway to simultaneously deliver instruction in programming, engineering, and spatial reasoning. Schools everywhere are struggling to fit in all of this "new" STEM/Maker curriculum into their course offerings. This workshop suggests a way to teach coding in a context that actively targets the development of other skills and intelligences necessary for superior STEM achievement.

AP Computer Science Principles with OpenSCAD and 3D Printing is hands on workshop that is appropriate for all coding ability levels. Please install OpenSCAD prior to attending as participants will actively code 3d projects as part of the session.
