Design and Advanced Fabrications
Students are able to bridge the connection between virtual and reality by designing their own projects through Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Software and then fabricating them with industry machinery. Future manufacturing is in their hands, literally! Students in our S.M.A.R.T. Programs are able to discover how they can think beyond limits with cutting-edge technologies that will shape the world for years to come!
You’ll Get To…
Students are exposed to Computer-Aided Design software and fabrication techniques and machinery such as 3D printers, CNC machinery, and welding.
Students participate in each step of the manufacturing process beginning with concept creation and ending with the manufacturing of the final product. Students are guided by a volunteer mentor who provides advice and structure along the way.
Students will learn to articulate their thoughts and ideas clearly and effectively; providing and receiving constructive criticism; and the ability to collaborate creatively with peers.
Students will gain experience on industry-standard CAD softwares and manufacturing equipment. Opportunities are present for relevant certification programming.
This program is open to all youth in the 5th through 12th grade in Lee, Collier, and Charlotte Counties. Youth must be focused, determined and ready to discover.
