During Saint Louis University's 3D Printing Summer Camp, students will learn the fundamentals of 3D printing and design. By the end of camp, students will build their own functioning 3D printers they will get to take home. In addition, students will get an opportunity to expirence college life by socializing with other campers, getting a tour of SLUs engineering facilities, and eating at SLU's dining halls!

The Teacher Camp will provide teachers with fundamental concepts of 3D printing that can be incorporated into their classrooms. At the end of camp, teachers will have their own functioning 3D printers to take back to their classroom with them.

This is a day camp only; overnight housing is not provided for the 3D Printing Summer Camp.
