Immerse yourself in the world of 3-D design and 3-D printer operation in this comprehensive and hands-on Kids' Maker Crew event on Oct. 20 and 21! Design and create a 3-D printed object in Chevron-Houston Texans Maker Annex workspace to take home!

In Level 1, you will complete a series of small projects to learn the ins and outs of 3-D printing, culminating in the creation of your very own custom 3-D-printed keychain.

In Level 2, you will learn how to design multiple interconnecting pieces by printing either a three-piece toy or puzzle.

In Level 3, you will design and print a part to replace a missing piece of a device or toy, learning how to design 3-D objects that function and interact in the real world.

Please check the workshop times for each Level below.

Upon completion of this Level 1 , Level 2, and Level 3 workshops, interested participants will be invited to join our brand new Kid's Maker Crew - with exclusive workshop and tinkering opportunities.
