Our experience is that most schools already have 3D printers, but far too few people who know how to use them. We wanted to change that – and the idea for our 3d printing KidsCamp was born! We want to share our enthusiasm for 3D printing with kids, introduce them to the technology and give them the opportunity to design and print parts on the computer themselves.
So this summer for the first time ever and supported by Ultimaker and Autodesk we welcomed 17 Kids in two consecutive weeks at our IAM Hub in Berlin for the MGA 3D printing KidsCamp!
In the past weeks, we have been teaching the next generation all about our amazing technology. The kids have spent time with us at our MGA site, learning about Additive Manufacturing not only in theory, but putting their visions into practice.
The two groups, each staying for one week, have taken their first steps into the world of Additive Manufacturing and implemented their knew knowledge of CAD programs by printing their own 3D objects. Our joint lunch breaks were used to exchange ideas, followed by many fun activities.
Now that our time is over, we are very happy about the outcome and would like to thank Ultimaker and Autodesk for helping us bring this project into reality.
We are already excited for next year and are hoping to host more excited kids in 2022!
