Project 1. Think Like a Designer 3D Printer Illustration


  • are introduced to the MPACT design/making model and design a bookmark to be 3D printed.  
  • learn about linear measurement. 
  • identify and correct errors in their Tinkercad designs (CT). 
Project 2. Make a Kite   Illustration of a kite

Students will:

  • use the design/making model to make an origami kite that really flies.  
  • learn about angles and symmetry. 
  • break complex problems down into simpler ones (CT). 
  • imagine how holes appear after they fold a paper, cut holes, and unfold the paper (spatial reasoning). 
Project 3. Make a Stamp  Illustration of a stamp

Students will: 

  • use the design/making model to make a 3D printed stamp with a symmetrical design. 
  • go deeper into symmetry. 
  • give directions to others on how to create a design in Tinkercad (CT). 
  • make a shape, resize it, and rotate it on a screen, imagining how it will look at each stage (spatial reasoning).
