3D PRINTING & FRUIT AND VEGETABLE PIANO

3D Printing Demonstration.  Watch several types of 3D Printers melt down plastic and precisely extrude it layer by layer to build up fully three-dimensional objects before

your very eyes! 

 

A 3D Printing expert will be on-hand to answer questions and show pictures of how 3D Printing is revolutionizing many aspects of life, from food to medicine

to construction to car and airplane manufacturing.

 

Fruit and Vegetable Piano.  Kids can play a piano by touching everyday fruits and vegetables!  Using the Makey-Makey electronics kit and using the principle of

"completing the electrical circuit", common food items are transformed into the keys of a musical instrument.

Thank you to parent Clay Budin for leading this activity. 

Recommended grade: 1st and up
