This year, approximately 90 Unit 4 middle school students have learned about rapid prototyping by using the TinkerCAD program to design and 3D print keychains. This opportunity has been part of a a partnership with University of Illinois Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate student Kitt Peterson and MechSE’s Education Coordinator, Joe Muskin, who designed a curriculum to support this work. 

The project is featured on the University of Illinois I-STEM website. Take a look at the article and photos here
