Adafruit CPX and 3D Design and Printing

The virtual workshop will give students a first look at the fundamentals and applications of computer science, programming, computer-aided design (CAD), and 3D printing technology through interactive, hands-on activities. Every accepted student will be provided and permitted to keep a Circuit Playground Express microcontroller at no cost. Additionally, students without home computer and/or internet access will be loaned equipment during the program to permit their participation. Both the microcontroller and any loaned equipment must be used with the appropriate supervision of a parent or guardian.

Space is limited – Please register now through Friday, February 12


Six Saturdays: March 6, 13, 20, 27 & April 10, 17, 2021 – 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM via Zoom. There will be no session on Saturday, April 3. Based upon interest and demand, the presenters may arrange help sessions at other times to assist students with programming and 3D printing.

In accord with MSU policy, a mandatory parent/student orientation session will be arranged ahead of the March 6 Saturday session.
