Student Post - Strand Session 4 - Prototyping

Last day of the STI2011! It's been a really wild ride for a host of reasons.

Today in Keith's strand we were 8th graders learning how to use Google SketchUp. As students we went to our blog and downloaded tutorials on how to draw basic, moderate, and advanced shapes and structures.

We also took at look at Automoblox which are really nice wooden car models. This was shown to tie in the problem solving process of bringing something that is 2D to 3D and the problems on may face adding the extra dimension.

Awesome end to a great conference.
