Water tight, Flow due to gravity,
Camille and I executed this lesson in Spring ’15 in Mrs. Murphy’s Argenziano 5th grade classroom as a warm up to our Structural Engineering via Architectural History curriculum. I learned from my previous lesson and had multiple testing stations for the students, but even with 3 stations for 20 students there was still a line. We had the students…[Read more]
Camille and I executed this lesson in Spring ’15 in Mrs. Murphy’s Argenziano 5ht grade classroom as a part of our Structural Engineering via Architectural History. The twist we added was in the problem statement of how to build a teepee that will withstand a storm and earthquake. This began our the overarching story of our curriculum. We…[Read more]
Camille and I executed this lesson in Spring ’15 in Mrs. Murphy’s Argenziano 5ht grade classroom as a part of our Structural Engineering via Architectural History. After building teepees for nomadic tribes, the tribe (played by STOMPers) comes across a river, and brainstorm with the class on how to cross it, potentially multiple times. Instead…[Read more]
So I know I’ve been talking a big game when it comes to the free 3D printing available to Tufts students. I’ve gotten a lot of questions like “How do I design something?” “What do I need in order to start?” and […]
I should really slow down with all the alliteration. As someone who loves baking, I’m really excited about this one. See those really cool Jumbo themed cookie cutters? Look at them. You can make COOKIES that look like that. I have always had a thing for eating shaped foods, notably Kraft Macaroni & Cheese (Pasta in the shape of Pikachu? How can…[Read more]
Devyn Curley wrote a new post, Brown Bag Breakdown: Build a Straw-Capsule for Mr.Egg, on the site 1 year, 9 months ago
This Brown Bag Lunch was from earlier in the summer, but it definitely deserves some recognition. Leo Madariaga, a graduate student at the CEEO, gave participants an objective: help Mr. Egg survive a crash landing! Leo handed out straws and tape to the Makers, and instructed them to build a capsule using different geometric patterns. Read more to…[Read more]
We all have some very small problems that are just part of our daily lives, problems that we adjust to and don’t usual consider fixing. Often it is a leaky faucet, creaking hinge, or the lock that needs to be jiggled in just the right way to open. For Jess Scolnic, it was an inconvenient light switch. Take a look at the picture and see if you…[Read more]
Everyone who has seen the popular HBO series: Game of Thrones has probably thought about having a pet dire wolf. Jeremy Slavitz decided to use 3D printing to make that thought a reality.
“I really wanted to make something using the 3d printers to verify that they are in fact as ridiculously powerful and capable as I’d believed they were.” -…
I have worked with 3D printers before in past internships, and I learned how useful they can be for
prototyping an idea, or a quick part replacement. But I decided to make my first print in the Jumbo Maker Studio to be both fun and functional.
!–more–So I decided to print a small cup that just happens to hold 1.5 oz. Despite the relatively…[Read more]
Come check out all of the creative and cool projects going on right in Tisch Library! See something you want to make yourself? Come into the space, or send an email to Jumbosmakerstudio@gmail.com, we’re always excited to help Makers get started.
Looking for a gift idea for someone? 3D printing is an inexpensive, and very creative way to go. As a HUGE fan of Calvin and Hobbes growing up, I became very excited about this 3D print by Brian Goodmon, a Software Engineer at Tufts.
“My project is to make a charm bracelet charm in the shape of Calvin’s (of Calvin and Hobbes)…
In addition to picking a fantastic name, Jenny Skerker and Nadia Hallaj did a great job with their first Brown Bag Lunch.
“We wanted to get across to people that 3D printers can be used for so much more than just cute toys or little trinkets. The focus of our workshop was to have people design and print products that they could actually use such…
For this activity, we had objects such as tin foil, paper, Popsicle sticks, paperclips, string, and salt to test for attraction. We had the students predict whether or not the materials would be attracted to the […]
Katrina and I did this activity with 2nd graders, but just with tin foil. The focus was more on improving the structure over choice of material. The first tests held their attention, but because one of us had to […]
