This Club is focused on the link between digital fabrication and Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM). Through collaborative projects and a process based on design thinking, students will have the opportunity to experiment with CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/ Computer Aided Manufacturing) technologies and to combine them with creative electronics, construction tinkering, etc. in order to find solutions for real “problems.” They will use state-of-the-art machinery (such FDM and SLA 3d printers, laser cutter, CNC Mill, etc.) and, motivated by their own curiosity, they will enter into a journey of creativity and construction!
The aim of the club is to familiarize students with design thinking, an anthropocentric, interdisciplinary approach to problem-solving, using new rapid prototyping technologies to develop and implement their ideas. They will learn the basic principles of digital design and will get to know the different materials and digital construction machines in the Fab Lab (Fabrication Laboratory).
