3D Printing UI/UX Design Workshop: Register Today!
Making Design Training Accessible
We are excited to launch our newest effort, our 3D printing UI/UX Design Workshop. 3D printing is something anyone can learn and it is done by melting a plastic like string in a particular method, one layer at a time until a 3D object forms (like this dragon below). There are free 3D printing "recipes" that you can use to print out various items, however, it is also interesting to learn how to design 3D objects by using good design principles. Our Cal NERDS Student Directors Saaleha Bey, Priyanka Saiprasad, and Emily Hill have designed an interactive workshop that is held on the weekends to provide UC Berkeley STEM students with exposure to these topics.Read More
