    The Tinkercad Student Design Contest is for all students who are using Tinkercad. To enter, you simply need to post an Instructable showing how you made a Tinkercad 3D design as part of your homeschooling experience. No 3D printer is required!

    We are giving away two prizes of $100 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 project 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 you identified a problem, or something broken, and used 3D design to create a fix.
    • Mashup – Show us how you took two of your 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.
