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?

Students of DIY Workshop Make First Skateboards in Afghanistan

 

Skateistan began as a Kabul-based NGO, and now operates projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and Pakistan, with a second facility opening in Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan, in 2013. Skateistan focuses on reaching out to girls and working children, using skateboarding as a tool for developing leadership opportunities, and building friendship, trust, and social capital among its students. While skateboarding is the initial way to get students involved, Skateistan is then able to provide access to education and platforms for self-expression that help break the cycles of poverty and exclusion.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Boys and girls participating in a cultural exchange to share new ideas - what a sizzlin' idea, growing and learning together.
