The cars started as drawings, then prototypes and the final models. Most of the students used the laser cutter for all the parts, but pair of student were set on using the 3D printer to make their wheels...and they did.
After their cars were made, the students started working on designing games for the kindergarten and 1st grade students. After coming up with concepts, the students set out to create a game that would be age appropriate, educational and fun. Once they were done, fellow students were asked to "beta" test the games and interfaces. Using feedback from the testing, a "final" version of the games was made and taken to the summer school kindergarten or first grade classes.
After those projects were completed, most of the students were able to work on a project of their own design on Friday. Some 3D printed, others used the laser cutter.
