The portfolio project is an effort to train Apprentices to document their designs as evidence of their skills and the Museum’s scope and purpose. While there is some collaboration in all designs, unless otherwise noted the creative and technical decisions that shaped this project are principally the apprentice’s.

Title: 3D Modeling and Animating in Blender

Age: 15
Apprentice Year: 3rd

Blender is a professional, open source 3D modeling and animation toolkit. It is used for creating animated films, visual effects, art, 3D printed models, interactive 3D applications, and video games. Blender contains numerous modeling features as well as an integrated game and physics engine.

During the summer of 2015, Dana led two week-long summer camps at the Eli Whitney Museum during which kids learned how to use Blender in order to model objects, create animations, and become familiar with the interface. Earlier that year, during the winter, she instructed a weekend class that had similar goals.
