The past week has brought us a few examples of high school students using Google SketchUp to model their school and town.
The first comes from Paragould High School in Paragould, Arkansas. A few students there have been working with SketchUp to model some of the buildings on their campus. They’ve only done two so far, they but they have plans for more. You can fly there using this KML file or read this story on the KAIT website. The article is not very well-written (it almost looks like it was auto-translated from English to a foreign language and back again), but the subject of the story is pretty neat.
The second comes from Hartford High School in Hartford, Vermont. Teacher Michael Hathorn introduced his class to SketchUp and they’ve now added more than 75 models from their city to the 3D Warehouse; over 50 of them have already been added to Google Earth!
For more, you can read their story on the Google SketchUp blog, fly to Hartford using this KML file, or watch the video below:
