City X Project | Using 3D printing, scanning, and modeling to imagine a better future with kids around the world.

City X Project | Using 3D printing, scanning, and modeling to imagine a better future with kids around the world. | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

In eight cities around the world, workshops will teach 3D modeling, scanning, and printing to children aged 8-10 within the framework of Stanford’s d.school design process.

 

In these activities, kids will use new technologies to model solutions for major real-world problems within the context of the fictional “City X,” the first settlement on an Earth-like alien planet.

 

3D technologies will help kids bridge the gap between digital and physical worlds, explore cultural differences, and co-create like never before.

 

The project’s driving philosophy is that we can’t build tomorrow until we imagine it today. And who’s more imaginative than kids?

Sharla Shults's insight:

Now that's education! Making it relevant - hands-on in the real world!

Inspiring Kids Tell TED Their Awesome Ideas About the Future of Learning

 

Apologies to all the astrologers, clairvoyants, and Nate Silvers out there—none of us knows what the future actually holds. Ask someone in 1913 if they could've predicted Madonna or the internet and you'll get an idea how clueless we are about what life in 2083 or 2093 will be like.

Sharla Shults's insight:

When it comes to dreaming about the future of learning, no one does that better than children.
