The Global Mystery 3D Print Challenge exemplifies one way the Trinity Hall community engages in global citizenship and makes learning meaningful.
The challenge is basically a game of “Guess Who?” From January through May our engineering students can participate by designing a cube or other shape using Tinkercad (a 3D CAD design tool) on which each side offers clues about the creator’s origin. Once their design file is submitted they receive a mystery cube file in return from somewhere else in the world. Then, the students 3D print the mystery cube and have one week to figure out the origin of the cube using the clues provided.
Junior Mary Kate Cashman was our first engineering student to accept the challenge and submit a design.
"The mystery cube was challenging to make because you don’t know anything about your recipient. However it was really cool to figure out where my mystery person was from because I didn’t know much about the Ukraine. It taught me more about the country and people who live there. It expanded my world view." ~Mary Kate Cashman '20
