We are happy to have supported Community Family Centers
summer youth program in our neighborhood Greater East End Houston by providing a hands-on educational technology experience for teens and tweens for the past three weeks!


About Our Program

Every week our Community Liaison Wanjun Zhang along with volunteers Blake Sanchez and Luke Chen brought a 3D Printer along with Laptops to the center to educate a group of students on 3D Design with Autodesk Fusion 360 as well as 3D Printing with our in-house manufactured 3D Printers. Students learned 3D Modeling and Design with two projects. They made a custom nametag to add to their backpacks for back to school, then engineered a fidget spinner of their own design. Through these hands-on projects, students were able to experience spatial reasoning, engineering, problem solving and design thinking. Most importantly, they brought their imagination and creative vision to life.
