    Announcing the Distance Learning with Tinkercad Contest


    The Distance Learning with Tinkercad Contest is for all educators and parents who are using Tinkercad as part of their distance learning experience. To enter, simply post an instructable with an outline of the assignment and demonstrates three examples of student work that includes Tinkercad 3D designs. No 3D printer required!  The best instructables will be eligible to win a $500 gift card! Contest closes June 1. Enter now.


    We are giving away two prizes of $500 gift cards for the following five categories:

    Make it Move – To win this prize, you need to demonstrate that you have designed and made something with functioning moving parts.

    Connectors – This prize is for any assignment that encourages the creation of connectors. It can be as simple as an L-bracket for a robot or as complicated as connecting a bicycle to power a blender. We are looking for creativity and functionality.

    Silly Solutions – Show us an example of how students identified a problem, or something broken, and used 3D design to create a fix.

    Mashup – Show us how your students took two of their favorite things (or things from the gallery) and creatively combined them to make something new.

    Scene – This prize is for designs of physical spaces, from parks and landmarks to undersea adventures.
