Instructor: Durmuş Sabuncu


In this workshop, the participants step into the exciting world of 3D printing. Getting inspiration from the life and achievements of Leonardo Da  Vinci, they observe objects around them from the perspective of a designer. They get introduced to 3D printers and understand their potential as they start to 3D print everyday life objects. They also develop their capabilities to think in 3D as they model the objects on the computer. They start their designs using simple sketches, do a team brainstorming session, and use design thinking methods to work just like industrial designers.

Students will do a home workshop with live broadcasts and videos specially designed for the participants during the summer school. They will draw and share their 3D designs which will be 3D printed and sent to them after the camp. They will also get short videos of their designs being 3D printed.
