Design: 3D Ocean Decoys – ONLINE

What students will learn:

Being a scientist sometimes means that you need to observe and monitor without being physically present to understand the real interactions in the ocean. Using animal decoy cameras is a common tool for scientist to observe without being present. In order to rapid prototype these decoys, technology such as 3D printing is utilised.

What students will do:

  1. Learn how to use and navigate online 3D Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) software.
  2. Create their own 3D ocean creature using modelling and geometric tools.
