3D Models: 'The Cloud', Constellations & The Solar System

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Mark will demonstrate how his students use Google Docs-most notably Spreadsheets, web applications, charts and Google SketchUp to create 3D models. Using the data they collect, students create 3D models of a selected Constellation (usually their birth sign) as well as a 3D model of the Solar System as it was at the moment of their birth. All software used is free and works equally well on Macs and PCs.
