RICE LAKE – University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire – Barron County is putting a little STEAM into the summer – science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Youths entering grades 7 through 12 (and highly motivated fifth- and sixth-graders) can enroll in 3D Design and Printing, where they will learn how to create a three-dimensional drawing and then convert that vision from paper to a 3D printed object they will take home.
The five-session course runs June 17-21 from 1 to 4 p.m. in the UWEC-Barron County Library. Art, computer-aided design (CAD), engineering, and coding concepts will be introduced and reinforced in the program.
Course instructors are Roger Britton, art instructor at Rice Lake High School, and Feroz Siddique, assistant professor of Mathematics at UWEC-Barron County. 3D printers at UWEC-Barron County were purchased with a grant from 3M.
Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. A limited number of scholarships are available.
