Do You Have What It Takes?


The HHS Library is running a 3D print design challenge! Sign-ups are taking place at the circulation desk through Friday, February 17th.

Your mission:

Design your own 3D print using an online program such as Tinkercad or SketchUp. Entries will be judged on the following:

- Originality

- Functionality

- Presentation (When presenting your design for judging, we want to hear the inspiration behind your design plan, problem-solving encountered while implementing your design plan, etc.)

- Whether or not your design complements your classroom curriculum (Bonus points if you can relate it to one of your subjects, or a class assignment!)

Judging (by a staff & student panel) will take place during Teen Tech Week, on Thursday March 6th! Prizes for the winner (including an Amazon gift card)!

Good luck to all!
