They will need to set up an online Tinkercad account before the start of the workshop.
On Monday, April 1, the workshop is for kids in 3rd through 5th grade, while on Tuesday, April 2, the workshop is for kids in 6th through 8th grade, and on Wednesday, April 3, the workshop is for kids in 4th through 8th grade and their parents.
