This new program is an excellent way to get primary and secondary schools started in 3D design and 3D printing. You need to have G Suite for education to use SketchUp for Education. You can download G Suite for free here. https://eduproducts.withgoogle.com/
Once you install G Suite, you can get the SketchUp software at this link. https://www.sketchup.com/education/sketchup-for-schools
Some of the benefits of this software are:
›Integrated with Google Drive and Google Classroom
›Works on Chromebooks or any Internet-connected computer. Currently in English-only open beta.
I expect great curriculum to come as the word gets out but there are many examples of how to get started at the SketchUp website. If you try it, let me know what you think. If you would like to find out more about getting 3D printers for your school, contact me for a free consultation. Every student should be familiar with 3D printing and additive manufacturing today and our goal is to spread knowledge.
