Question: What do you get when you
combine 3DVinci with Google SketchUp? Answer:
Students having so much fun, they don't realize that they're learning
the same design and spatial-relations skills taught to architects, artists, mathematicians, and engineers.
Our project books are great for
class or homework projects, and can be used as enrichment or supplements to curriculum. Our materials are also great for after-school clubs, and educational summer
