Engineering TinkerCad

When our students needed to design enrichment activities for zoo animals, think tire sculptures for elephants and music boxes for horses, they needed to verify the quality, safety and strength of the design before we started to build them. After all, we were going to use it with elephants!

Tinkercad was a perfect option. Tinkercad is an easy to use software that allows students to design and 3D print their ideas. 

Tinkercad is easy for students to use. However; please don’t make the error that I did, and think students can figure it out themselves. They do need some help, however; Tinkercad has lots of tutorials for you, parents and students to use to get started. 

Look at some of these fantastic things kids are making with Tinkercad.
