Every year, our 3D printing team enters into a competition called CC3DP (creative challenge in 3D Printing).
This year, the task was to make a product based on a silicone mold.
Students had to
- brainstorm ideas
- create 3D designs on Sketchup (CAD program)
- troubleshoot designs
- print the 3D design into a physical object
- press the 3D object into silicone to create molds
- pour gelatin into molds
- package gummies
- create packaging logo
- create presentation for the competition
Our team won the "live challenge" which is a design problem that they are given an hour to complete on the day of the competition.
Kudos to our team and our amazing science teacher, Mr. Leslie!
