Jump into the 21st century and learn 3D modeling! Then use the 3D printer to bring your digital creation to life.

DAY 03: Basic Electronics
Learn basic electronics and soldering by building your own mini battery-powered vibro-bot. Then explore simple circuitry by creating custom light-up cards.

DAY 04: Chocolate Molds
Make your own chocolates using the laser cutter and vacuum former. You will pour delicious molten chocolate into your shape and walk away with candy and a personalized mold to use again at home.

DAY 05: Tetrahedral Fractal Kite
