The event will feature Andy Weir, author of the best-selling novels The Martian and Artemis.
Using 3DBear’s app and a virtual gallery of objects in Thingiverse, teams will develop 3D objects and create a colony on Mars. They will also consider the scientific principles behind growing plants and recycling water on their colony, and will use a Makerbot 3D printer to bring their 3DBear AR design to life.
3DBear, a leading provider of engaging AR solutions for education, allows students to create three-dimensional scenes right on their mobile devices. Students of all ages use 3DBear to actively design and create mixed-reality scenes, then bring their models to life using a 3D printer. 3DBear’s integration of AR, 3D modelling, and 3D printing is a fun, technology-enriched way of engaging learners across all subjects.
