No CAD (computer-aided-design) experience? No problem!
CAD is a computer technology that designs a product and documents the design's process. BlocksCAD is a graphical, engaging, and effective way to CAD where the outcome is improved math and computer science skills.
This workshop will cover the use of BlocksCAD - drag and drop software similar to Scratch that is mostly used to describe a solid 3D model. For example, you can use variables to make a design that can change sizes - like a ring where you can specify the finger radius. Or you can use loops to make even patterns or shapes in a design - like the numbers on a dice or the steps in a staircase. In addition, you can build up your own library of shapes to use in designs.
This is a Rhode Island Computer Museum virtual workshop using Google Meet. This workshop is open to all ages 10 and up, with a cap at 16 participants. The workshop is part of RICM’s ongoing virtual outreach workshops.
