What a cool project. I'm writing a follow-up about this today and the results are pretty amazing, especially for one very talented and lucky 11-year-old boy.

Developing Critical Thinking

I like how the City X project incorporates critical thinking into the learning process (and doesn't just use 3D printing as another technology novelty).  We could use more workshops like this that develop creativity and brainstorming through engaged technical learning.

Will building on a 3D printer lead to dependance on machines to do all the work, or lead to creativity?
