FIU’S EDUCATION EFFECT OFFERS SUMMER WORKSHOP IN ACCELERATED BRIDGE DESIGN THROUGH THE UNIVERSITY TRANSPORTATION CENTER. In this one-day workshop on 3D printing, children and their parents built upon their knowledge of bridge design and were exposed to some of the exiting explorations in 3D printing, design, and citizen science happening at the CARTA Innovation Lab. Below, interactive tour with lab director, John Stuart.
GROWLIGHT BREAKTHROUGH MIAMI SUMMER CAMP 2017 IS BACK!! Supported by the Children’s Trust, Miami Dade County, Michael W. Larkin, Nike, Dell, Bercow Radell Fernandez & Larkin, and McNEEL & Associates North America, this summer’s four-week camp focuses again on design, art, technology, urbanism and public policy. Led by FIU architecture students Maria Elisa Marini and Elisa Leal with the supervision of Breakthrough Miami’s Justin Pinn, and with instruction by FIU architecture students Daniela Echeverry, Sophia Cabral, Amanda Valino, and William Valle, the 10th graders in this program start each day with a stretching exercise and includes work with Rhinoceros 3D modelling software and 3D printing. The hope is that over the course of the summer camp, students will learn how to transform their ideas into 3D models and use the 3D prints of their ideas to help them to find ways to make their dreams into realities.
