2016 New Years Designs

Happy New Year!

Holiday decorations are a great MakerEd design challenge for students. It is a great prompt to think about and incorporate culture and history while customizing and personalizing a design. (January is the perfect time for students to create designs for Black History Month.) Search any 3D repository and you will see there is a rich opportunity for students to contribute. Take time to have the students write descriptions and create meaningful keywords for their work.

Below are some of the designs I created/remixed for the new year and how you can design your own.
