3D Printing Boot Camp
Some practical information to start:
Computer hardware and electronic are essential components of Computer Science. As you improve your coding skills, you will need to understand what are the various hardware limitations you are exposed to in order to write a more efficient code.
With the Internet of Things (or IoT) becoming an important area of research across the globe, hardware prototyping is especially relevant nowadays and a logical addition to our curriculum.
3D printing is one of the key future technologies, enabling businesses to cut costs, reduce time to market, produce stronger and lighter parts, improve efficiency, and solve a myriad of other challenges.
That’s why we think it’s important for our students to have an understanding of the technology in the 21st century global economy.
- 3D printing technology positions students as creators rather than consumers
- Digital fabrication teaches the process of trial and error
- It brings a very hands-on experience to most teaching
- 3D printing will help catapult art back to an essential skill
Our Hardware curriculum focuses on giving our students a hands-on maker experience.
Our students are making actual objects from sketching all the way to the actual prototype.
This is a 3-day (3hr/day) Boot Camp during which our students will build an Arduino Tamagotchi Clone (Digital Pet).
We are going to build our own digital pet using Arduino, a Tamagotchi clone.
With over 76million units sold worldwide Tamagotchi was one of the most popular toys of the 90s.
In our game, we will take care of a small dinosaur.
This program is taught in partnership with Kyoto Makers Garage (KMG).
It will take place at KMG's studio. (500m from KRP, GoogleMap link)
where students will be able to work on the most common maker stations and tools:
- 3D printers: Stereolithography (Formlab) and Fused Deposition Modeling
- CNC (a computer-controlled cutting machine used for cutting various hard materials, such as wood, composites, aluminum, steel, plastics...)
- Laser cutting machines
