Using Engineering Tools to Make Art - 8th Grade

Often the best way to introduce a new tool to students is to show them how it works, but don't show them examples of what to make with it. The 3 Minute Rose is a project that evolved from showing 8th graders a few features in Fusion 360 and letting them run with it. Fusion 360 is more often used to design machines then flowers, but maybe that is because adults artificially frame what can be done with a particular tool. Leave it to students to go from STEM education to STEAM education, adding an "A" for Art along the way!
