Creative Pathways Outreach is a programme aimed at giving children, students, communities, cultural groups and anyone interested in learning new tools, and the opportunity to experience 3D-printing through creative and digital means. Utilizing a hands on Design approach, projects are designed with teachers, community leaders and facilitators to ensure students are engaging, learning objectives and standards are met. Through this we want to assist and build maker communities, build interest in the STEMMD (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing and Design) sector, and establish future leaders in our communities.
Students and teachers are given the opportunity to experience 3D-printing in schools with the hope to create higher digital literacy skills for the next generation. Creative Pathways outreach is targeted typically towards college/high schools. we are also able to run workshops with other student groups (primary school, alternative education, tertiary providers etc).
Creative Pathways outreach is opened to events and workshops outside of the classroom. Please feel free to contact with any questions.
