PRINT&LEARN: 3D DESIGN WORKSHOP SPOTLIGHTING FEMALE INVENTORS

On Saturday March 13th we held a virtual workshop to introduce participants to 3D design and explore some awesome female inventors, in honor of Women’s History Month in March. Participants had less than a week to create a 3D design showcasing a female inventor of their choice!

Submissions can be viewed in the gallery page HERE.

Designs will be reviewed and winners in the categories of “Best Design”, “Most Informative”, and “Most Creative” will be selected for a prize. The top 5 designs in each category will have their design printed on a 3D printer and provided to the designer!
