Junior Makers: 3D Printed Monster

NOVA Fab Lab's Junior Makers program creates a fun, social environment for our youngest generation of makers to be introduced to fabrication and to build confidence in their STEM and problem-solving skills!

We offer a wide range of topics and activities for 4th-8th grade students to create a unique project with their parent or guardian. Spring sessions are now available on Saturday mornings from 9am-12pm.

March 18 - 3D Print a Monster
Does your child want to create a one-of-a-kind toy? Take your child's maker skills to the next level with this fabrication project. Students will sculpt a prototype of their dream monster friend and we'll teach them how to make it into a plastic figurine. Students will learn how to create a 3D model in TinkerCAD software and then 3D print their models in our fabrication lab. When the prints are complete and processed, the final monsters will be shipped to their designers so that they can show off their custom-made toy. 

The cost per child: $25


Other Junior Makers Workshops:

April 1 - Casting Candy Legos - Like Legos? Like chocolate? Us too. In this project, you and your child will be using Legos to build their initials and thermoform their Lego board to create their own personalized candy bar. The cost per child: $20

April 15 - Laser-Cut Birdhouses - What better way to welcome spring than by building a birdhouse? Join your child in designing and customizing their very own birchwood birdhouse with the use of our laser cutters. Students will learn about how laser cutters work and see the application in front of their eyes when engraving their birdhouses. The cost per child: $25

April 29 - Animatronic Stuffed Animal - Introduce your child to coding with our no-experience-necessary beginner's workshop! Students will learn the basics of coding in C and sewing. They'll apply their new skills to bring a stuffed animal to life with an Arduino. The cost per child: $30
