3D Design & Printing Program

The 3D Design and Printing program is comprised of 3 components; in-school residencies, a competitive challenge season, and teacher training. Residencies involve RPGA  traveling to schools and after school programs where we teach 12-30 weeks of CAD design and fabrication to students ages 8-14. Students learn CAD software to design their ideas and printers to see those ideas turn into real world objects.

To increase impact RPGA Studio also works directly with teachers in elementary or middle schools to create a curriculum that can be used during the school day. In 2016 RPGA trained over 25 teachers impacting over 2000 students who learned CAD design as part of their in school instruction in ELA., math, or technology. 

For maximum impact RPGA created a Creative Challenge in 3D Design and Printing. This is a 12-20 week challenge. The challenge has several components: Challenge registration, kickoff, training, design season, and culminating event.
