Double or Nothing
A Makers Story about 3D Printing
Mason and Mia are twins . . . but don’t always get along. When Mia wins a dolphin at the fair, Mason really, really wants one, too. If only Mia could make a twin dolphin!
This story explores the Makers theme of 3D Printing and helps young makers understand how it works and get excited to try it for themselves! Mia and Mason are able to make a 3D scan of the dolphin to create a 3D model, and use a special kind of melted plastic to create the three-dimensional design.
Tying into the popular Makers Movement, Makers Make It Work is a series of fun easy-to-read stories that focus on problem-solving and hands-on action.
*Bonus Activity in the Book: Draw a picture of your favorite animal from each side—a 2D drawing, then use it to create a 3D model.
