Do you love making things? Want to improve your skills and learn how to design laser cut parts on the computer? Our Laser Maker 2 day Summer camp gives a full overview of designing accurate parts using a computer, and how to use a laser cutter through a range of practical projects.

Learn how to design for laser cutting using Tinkercad, a popular (and free!) online platform. Follow our tutorials whilst adding your own personal touches: create foam gliders, laser cut keyrings, bedroom door signs, clocks, crazy sunglasses and more. The best bit: you get to take home all of your creations at the end of the camp to show your friends!

This camp is also available as part of the 5 day Maker Week camp.

 
  • Learn 2D CAD using TinkerCad, a free online tool designed for schools
  • Create a variety of laser cut projects over 2 days
  • Learn how to get great results using a laser cutter
  • Cut out and build your designs in the classroom using our compact laser cutters
  • Learn individual skills with a series of projects, whilst adding your own design touches
  • Take all of your projects and files home at the end!
