3D Printing and HTML & CSS

Students observed the structures in their immediate environment, both natural and man-made. Using Splat3D the students experimented drawing 3D shapes and then building on to create more interesting objects. Using the tutorials on https://splat3d.com/ the girls developed further skills.



The girls were introduced and given time to play with Tinkercad. Once they had mastered the basics, they started to design an avatar or object of interest to themselves.Some of the designs included: scuba-bot, sailing boat, gangsta bunny, snowmen, rabbits, chickens, trophy, bag tags and dog tags.

Self-paced videos of learning about HTML and CSS were then engaged;  learning the skills to build a website with a narrative about their 3D printed object.



Few of the websites can be viewed below:
