Introduction to the Critical Technical Practice Lab & digital maker technologies v2

January 25, 2018

The second part of the workshop, the youth were engaged in using the laser cutter machine to create parts for 3D sculptures that they then assembled. Following the hands-on work, we discussed with the youth how the facilities at the CTP Lab fit into and expand their ideas of what can be created using digital technology.

They were challenged to build a puzzle in groups of three and at the same time, they found out how the laser and material are prepared to make those same puzzles.
