tinkHer2 is a compileHer event spread over the course of two days where students
will learn how to work with 3D print their own objects using 3D printing and experience
the University of Chicago's MADD Center!
During the Zoom workshop on 11/13, students will learn about Computer Aided Design (CAD)
and 3D printing. They will use TinkerCAD—a free, online Autodesk program—to design
ornaments. The finished products will be printed in the University of Chicago's MADD
Center and will be available for pickup at the second event, on 11/19. Students will also
hear from MADD center speakers like Kent Lambert, Assistant Director of the Hack Arts Lab,
and Ashlyn Sparrow, Assistant Director of the Weston Game Lab. All attendees will receive
an individually wrapped snack after the event.
Prior experience not required, recommended for students in 6th grade and above (although
younger students are welcome as well).

of ongoing health risks to the unvaccinated, those who are unvaccinated are expected to
adopt the risk mitigation measures advised by public health officials (masking and social
distancing, etc.) Public convening may not be safe for all and carries a risk for
contracting COVID-19, particularly for those unvaccinated. Participants will not know the
vaccination status of others, including venue staff, and should follow appropriate risk
