Our Programs

Face-to-Face Workshops

Working with local schools, libraries, park districts, science fairs, and other youth institutions and organizations, Youth 3D brings first-hand 3D printing experience to children.  Meet and learn STEM concepts, share the applications.  

Shared Resources

Youth 3D develops and shares multimedia materials to stimulate youth interest in the field, and make learning about 3D printing available and less daunting for all students. 

Experienced members are encouraged to teach and mentor others just starting in 3D printing.  Peers learn and explore together through community forum and printing projects.
