Google SketchUp Session at EMBHSSC Spring Training

February 13, 2012

The ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp recently hosted a workshop for camp administrators from across the country.  They asked me to share how we used Google SketchUp at the UALR camp.  Below are the session description and slides.

Participants will learn how Google’s free SketchUp 3D modeling tool can be used to transform student ideas into digital scale models. Using built-in textures and presets, students can quickly see what their design would look like in real life. Pulling existing models of buildings, vehicles, and machinery from Google’s 3D Warehouse, students can focus on creating scenario-based solutions with minimal experience using 3D modeling software.
