Don’t you wish you could have learned in elementary school what kids have access to now?
That was one of the comments of a designer from TimeFire VR, speaking of how excited she was to see 6th graders quickly learn how to use SculptGL. It is a powerful open source CAD program for 3D sculpting. (I created this in just 2 minutes, having no experience!)
Of course there is much more work to be done and TimeFire showed us how we could to get there, with Blender, another open source application. This being Digital Learning Month, we will have time to get deeper into CAD and 3D sculpting. I’m planning to ask TimeFire to come back for an encore session soon.
I like to thank John Vise for making this happen. Specially to Jessica, Rainy, and Ariana for showing us the exciting software, and future career possibilities.
