S T E M Education



• Make games that use sensors and your body parts as the controller.
• Make interactive devices by means of programming, and sensors of course.
• Write programs to control the robot or give it some intelligence.


3D Printing



3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file.
The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.
