This class introduces students to SketchUp, a fun and free 3D computer modeling program. Students will investigate how housing has changed over the years and what’s in store for the future. Students will consider green design strategies such as using renewable energy sources, green and blue roofs, and natural lighting. Students will then create their own digital designs for a house of the future.

Students will need to bring their own laptop and charging cord with Windows 11 or 10 or Mac OS 13+ (Ventura), 12+ (Monterey) and 11+ (Big Sur) for this class. Students can bring their own mouse or CFA will provide a wired mouse for student use. Students will be sent a link to download the free SketchUp trial software prior to the first day of class. Students with Chromebooks can use the free web-based SketchUp software.

*This program is during NYC Public School February Break*
