Your child or teen can build some fun into their day while also gaining skills that could help them in future careers during the Phoenix Public Library’s MACH1 online/virtual classes.

The library offers these courses from 3:30 to 5 p.m. every Thursday. Youths ages 8 to 17 learn the basics of 3D modeling using Tinkercad. They create simple shapes and assemble them into more complicated creations and then design their own 3D printed pieces. The 3D modeling also is used for video game design, animation and other purposes. Students who participate in multiple sessions and finish their projects can print them. Beginner and intermediate modelers can attend these virtual classes.

In order to take part in this course each child or teen must obtain a free Tinkercad account. The classes are delivered in Microsoft Teams and sessions are limited to 15 students. To register, visit
