Would you like to become a team member, who would like to participate in the prestigious annual 3D Vermont: Town History in 3D Competition?
According to the 3D website:
Hidden within the small valleys of Vermont are historical treasures - beautiful buildings with a past as rich as their architecture. Using the 3D modeling software Sketchup and 3D printing technology, the Town History in 3D Competition brings Vermont historical buildings and their amazing past to life.
High School and middle school students from around the state are challenged to work in teams to research and recreate 3D models of historical buildings in their area. In the process they uncover and document the history of buildings and create a multimedia presentation to accompany their printed 3D models.
All completed models and their accompanying multimedia presentations are entered into a now annual statewide spring invitational showcase where they are judged for their technical mastery, architectural accuracy and historical research and presentation.
Teams are encouraged to research, reproduce and document more than one building in their town.
During the course of the challenge, with help from their coaches, students will achieve the following learning outcomes:
- Learn to use Sketchup to create geo located 3D models.
- Get to know their communities and community histories through directed research.
- Create a multimedia presentation on the building to accompany the 3D model.
- Present their ideas to peers, experts in the field, and community members.
