Kids and teens can learn valuable 3D printing skills from the comfort of home year-round! From 1-on-1 online tutoring to multiple 3D printing camps held on campus at iD Tech Camps and Alexa Café, students can make their design dreams become tangible, 3D-printed realities. (Note: Due to COVID, most of our university partners are delaying decisions about on-campus programs.)
