Three, 3D printed models of surfaces, discretized to varying degrees
Teacher friends in the San Diego area- National University is hosting a workshop about maker tech for science teachers on Friday, July 14.

We have a great lineup!  Rich Cameron and I will be talking about our work creating 3D printed science projects, we'll have two proposed charter schools with a maker focus talking about their plans, case studies from the classroom, an agricultural water-saving Arduino project, and more! Event is free to educators. More: https://julynumakertechworkshop.eventbrite.com

We're excited to announce that on July 12th we will be teaching two in-person classes at the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator in Downtown LA (near 4th and Alameda). Signups are at the links!

In the morning, we will teach an Intro to 3D Printing.
In the afternoon, we will give an overview of fashion tech - clothing that lights up, reacts to its environment and so on. 

Hope to see you there!
