How I Use It
Tinkercad is used as an introductory leading to practicing but powerful 3D design, electronics, and coding platform. This is simple enough for a 1st grade to design and print their first 3D print, or code a sequence, or develop circuitry to sound an alarm all through the collection of tools provided by Autodesk. While this may seem like an elementary based audience, pump the brakes - its for all ages (yes, even your parents!). The tools allow for understanding measurement and design for 3d modeling, students understanding the sequencing and effects of coding, to how the path of circuits can be altered. I have used this with High School students as a 3D printing design solutions with great success. This is a game changer for education and all since it's accessible to all.
My Take
This is the premier game changer for digital design, coding, and circuitry. These software tools that help people all ages think, create and build. I use this Anyone can design, do electronics, and code. Through play and encouragement students and teachers can unlock the passion and untapped skills of a next generation of engineers, designers, dreamers, coders, and entrepreneurs. Tinkercad is the most important tech tool that has the potential to make ground shaking change in education and I encourage each educator to try it today!
