7th May 2016
DTSL hosted a 3D printing and littleBits electronics experience workshop at Po Leung Kuk Chee Jing Ying Primary School. Parents and students design their own 3D printed key-ring tag and enjoyed a fun engineering session with littleBits and build servo arms and bubble guns. The workshop was an initiation for the STEM programme to be launched in CJY Primary School.
Makers Empire is a free 3D design softwares for iPad and PC platforms. It is suitable for young children as it can be easily operated with our finger tips. After learning the basics of Makers Empire, everyone was able to produce their own unique and creative key-ring tags.
littleBits is a platform of easy-to-use electronic building blocks that empower you to invent anything from your own remote controlled car, to a smart home device. Students were able to create their own bubble gun and catapult with littleBits and simple materials such as plastic cups and cardboards. DTSL also brought in s synth guitar and a remote control car that were made from 3D printing and littleBits. The students enjoyed the session and would like to learn more about how to build them
Recently, DTSL has provided 3D printing solutions and supplied littleBits for CJY Primary School for the school to implement 3D design and printing into its STEM curriculum. With the aid of littleBits and 3D printing, science and technology were no longer out of reach for local primary school students.
