Learn 3D Modeling + Design

DMA’s 3D Modeling + Design courses take students through the design process helping them to learn the tools and techniques they’ll need to be professional animations, designers and 3D modelers. In Wearable Tech & Fashion Design students will gain hands on experience in 3D modeling for fashion design, programming, electrical circuitry, stitching and more. Using the same software as the pro’s, students will walk away at the end of the week wearing their own creations ready to take on the design world!

The Made By Girls Experience

DMA’s Made By Girls program offers a unique learning experience designed to introduce girls to STEM learning in a collaborative and supportive environment. MBG is powered by a dynamic group of role models including educators, industry leaders, and creators, who inspire our students to build both 21st century skills and confidence.
