3D Printing Workshop with KiraKira’s Suz Somersall

When: Sunday, March 5, 2017 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Where: San Francisco

Our teen members will get to learn about and use a 3D printer. The goal: design something that represents you. Create a 3D object that represents a piece of who you are (culture, personality trait, personal goal, or something you’ve overcome). KiraKira is very generously going to print everyone’s creations on the 3D printer for free!

Members can email Kara to let her know they’ll be attending one of these video chats.
