Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Design and 3D print your own planter

In this project, we'll go over the main aspects of the design process (1. planning, 2. brainstorming, 3. prototyping, 4. testing and iterating, and 5. creating a finished product). The goal will be to create a planter or any other product of your choosing. Not only will we discuss the different tools and techniques for each stage, but you'll have a finished product that you'll feel proud of!
