    Autodesk has teamed with our friends at Mbadika's mLab and Crazy Aunt Lindsey's Fab Lab HQ  to deliver a free, live learning experience that will engage your kids with STEAM activities using tools like Tinkercad and Fusion 360. We hope this will provide fun for the whole family! Let's #TinkerTogether.

    From yoga to rapid prototyping, these free lessons will be available live Monday, April 6 through Friday, April 17.

    Making “space” for parents and educators too

    And how are YOU doing?! Like all of you, we're adapting day-by-day, and we imagine that you are too. We thought you might also need a space to share your experiences and connect with peers. So to complement these sessions, we will be hosting weekly virtual roundtables for educators and parents to discuss and brainstorm ideas for how to navigate remote learning with students. This will also be an opportunity to ask questions to the Tinkercad team about how to get started in Tinkercad, and also to share best practices for how it can be used as a vehicle for bringing joy and creativity to learning.

    Please register here for these virtual roundtables: autode.sk/STEAM3
