Creator Courses

Dive Deeper Into Your Creative Journey!

CREATE at Arizona Science Center®'s Creator Courses offer the space for Makers to expand on their creative passions. The Makerspace currently offers two courses: Build a 3D Printer and Wood Shop.

Creator Course: Build A 3D Printer

$1,999 | Ages 8+
3-Day Sessions | 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
June 3-5 & 17-19
Registration Closes 8 Weeks in Advance of Each Session

This 3-day Creator Course will allow Makers to build their own Prusa Mini 3D Printer, create a 3D-printed object, learn preventative maintenance, and explore tips and tricks from our experts at CREATE!

Day One is dedicated to constructing your very own Prusa Mini 3D Printer. Day Two walks Makers through the process of designing files, test prints and calibrations, how to prepare your printer for a build, and the time and freedom to finish your first build! Day Three explores troubleshooting common problems, maintaining your printer, and time for slicing and printing.

By the end of this Creator Course, Makers will have their own 3D printer to take home, the skills to create a build and the knowledge to perform regular maintenance.

Makers ages 8-13 must be accompanied by an adult.


Creator Course: Wood Shop

$150 | Ages 13+ | 3 Hours
First and Last Saturdays
10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. | 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.

This 3-hour Creator Course allows Makers to dive deeper into woodworking! Step into CREATE’s private woodshop and allow our expert techs to walk you through safely using a variety of saws and drills, handling an oscillating spindle sander and working with a Brad Nailer. By the end of this workshop, Makers will leave with a self-made wooden creation and the skills to continue their woodworking journey.

Makers ages 13-17 must be accompanied by an adult. To keep the Woodshop at a safe capacity, we require each accompanying adult to be ticketed. Closed-toe shoes required.
