Celebrating Adinkra through Digital Fab 

Students create custom Adinkra symbols using a variety of different methods including low-tech art supplies and digital fabrication machines including a 3D printer and vinyl cutter. 

After completing the ELA lesson for Adinkra symbols students will complete a series of activities for them to create their own symbols using simple art supplies as well as Digital Fabrication tools. Students will design and model their symbols using the 3D modeling program, Tinkercad as well as, with help from their teacher, create their own 2D symbol to be made into a sticker.
