This month we are challenging students to design a Shoebee, a decorative 3D printed charm that needs to attach to your shoelaces and look cool. Extra points awards to designs incorporating clever attachment mechanisms:
NO 3D PRINTER? NO WORRIES! If your classroom does not have access to a 3D printer, teachers can submit their classes’ designs to us and we will 3D print them and mail them to you.
Teachers need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with design and student usernames as well as the school address to send the prints to.
This free STEM activity will introduce you to 3D printing the easiest way possible!
Once you have received your Shoebees, please take a photo of them attached to your shoes and let us know! (Twitter: @makersempire)
