Last spring I had the pleasure of teaching children from the Alley Teen Center how to operate Google SketchUp, a tool used by the GIS Lab to create 3D buildings. Since a good portion of them had done work with SketchUp before it was easy for them to get back into the swing of things. After a test trial to see what everyone’s skills were, we gave each of them a simple two story house to build and offered prizes to the person with the best house. Hopefully this semester we can pick up right where we left off!
