Here's what we did :

1. make things with a 3d pen

2. program a robot to dance and wave

3. scan our faces to make a 3D models of them

Stuff they had already printed to show us:

Halloween pumpkin 

A fake hand


My favourite thing was getting to use the 3D pen.

If you would like to have a look at their work go to

If I could make a 3D model of anything I would make a fish. What would you make ?
