For the past two weeks, Cardinal Ritter has hosted a 3D Printing Camp for Indianapolis students. Future engineers from all around Indianapolis, ranging in ages from seven to 15, learned to work with software that allows the modeling and printing of 3D objects.
Students created nametags, light boxes, fan-propelled racecars, marshmallow catapults, as well as their own creations. The campers were excited to hold an object in their hands that was just an idea in their minds a short time before.
The camp was instructed by teacher Carita Girman and conducted by 3D Parts Manufacturing, the company that granted the 3D printers to Cardinal Ritter. This is the second-ever camp hosted by 3D Parts Manufacturing and Cardinal Ritter.
