Create 3D models using CODE.
These lessons are based around designing using Scratch code blocks. Scratch is the number one way to teach coding in classrooms around the world. The Beginner's Coding for Kids curriculum teaches children how to design models for 3D printing using TinkerCAD code blocks which uses scratch 3.0. At the moment the coding curriculum is only available via the 'buy the files option'. Watch the video below to learn more.
