How can educators affordably bring hands-on learning and cutting edge technology to students around the world?  In this workshop participants will learn about the City X Project, an open-education workshop and online game that uses 3D printing, modeling and scanning to empower kids around the world to understand how ideas become reality and how they can participate in that process.  To learn how to facilitate the City X Project in various classroom settings, participants will first design, model, and print a solution for a fictional character in the new capital city of Mars: City X.  The second half of the workshop will feature a feedback and brainstorming session related to classroom implementation and recommendations for change.  Participants will leave knowing how to model and 3D print original ideas using free software.  Participants are required to bring a computer or iPad tablet.
