Remaining Open to Continuous Learning
CAD Crafts students will explore new creative outlets as they utilize CAD software. Students will also explore math and geometry concepts in a hands-on learning environment and will intuitively understand principles of mathematics that go above and beyond the elementary school level. Students might also discover connections to history, as they learn about design trends and toy history. Or they may discover (or create) new design trends when they create original toys.
Intelligent people are in a continuous learning mode. They are invigorated by the quest of lifelong learning. Their confidence, in combination with their inquisitiveness, allows them to constantly search for new and better ways. People with this Habit of Mind are always striving for improvement, growing, learning, and modifying and improving themselves.
