The Pixel Academy is a week-long camp that teaches 3D printing for kids by letting them get hands-on and become the designers of anything they could possibly want to create. While it takes many years of schooling to become a product designer, the rapid prototyping that 3D printing allows gives kids a fast pass to becoming expert inventors.

The academy is set up like a relaxed drop-in space after school, where kids can learn and create at their own pace, guided by the onsite instructors. The Pixel Academy's Design Director, Andy An, posts the awesome 3D-printed creations by the kids to his Tumblr account. Some of the amazing creations include impressive playsets that range from organic to geometric in shape, proving that the possibilities for what can be created are endless.
