Course Description

IN PERSON: This course will be a lighthearted, hands-on dive into several new technologies. You've read about researchers printing new body parts with 3D printers. The basic technology for this and the other tools you will experience in this course is straightforward. You will walk away with some 3D design skills, access to libraries of 3D materials and experience 3D printing an object (without having to own a printer). You will learn how to use an inexpensive 360-degree video camera as well, and how to create professional-looking graphics with the web-based Canva program. Another skill you will learn, particularly valuable as our fingers become less nimble, is how to make extensive use of voice recognition for creating Word documents, creating events and sending texts. You will also learn how to set up and activate remote switches for appliances. And, just for fun, we will put women on U.S. currency with augmented reality, since the Treasury Department has been slow in making this happen! | Active Skill Learning.

Max enrollment: 12.
