In line with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology’s Digital Youth Strategy, STUDIO 5/6 is mainly aimed at nurturing youth as digital learners by sharpening their 21st century learning skills, as they develop in an all-pervasive digital environment. In… Read More


In this online camp, participants will need to attend 5 days, each day they will have to attend a one-hour class to learn about 3D design, 3D scanning, and digital manufacturing.


What You'll Need

Computer, Internet connection, 3Dscanner (optional).

The Instructions

Day 1 - Technologies of 3D scanning

3D scanning technology is used for creating 3D models of real-world objects. In this session participants will get introduced to some types of 3D scanning technologies and their related applications, then they will get introduce to Sense 3D scanner and learn how an object can be scanned.

when starting the first day introduce participants to the camp, for example, tell them “Today we are going to start sport tech camp to explore 3D scanning, 3d design, and what technologies are used in digital manufacturing.

In this camp, you will need to attend 5 days during the week, each day you will have a one-hour class, and on the last day, you will be asked to conduct a final project.”

After explaining about the camp, introduce the ENGINEERING DESIGN CHALLENGE, which is a problem that they need to solve.

EX: Saleh is a Boling player looking to be the best and win the title of the champion.

Saleh doesn’t feel comfortable with the bowling ball size, so he is asking for you’re help to customize one that fits with his hand and its related pins so he can win and be the champion.


after they finish reading the challenge ask them some questions

How to know what is the best bat size for Saleh grip?

     We should measure the size of Fahed hands.

What are technologies available to take the measurements of something?

introduce 3D scanning and how it can be used to measure 3D objects

Have you heard about 3D scanning?




tell them In this class, you’ll learn everything you need to know to use your camera to take objects from the world around you and turn them into 3D models on your smartphones! I’ll introduce you to the basic concepts of 3D scanning and teach you an easily accessible method of reality capture called photogrammetry. Then I’ll show you how to use a great program called Qlone that will magically reconstruct your photos into 3D models.


Photogrammetry is an incredibly useful technology in various fields. The technology takes multiple images, taken at different positions, and triangulates points in these images to figure out the location of them in a three-dimensional space.
