Boston-based BlocksCAD is a STEM education technology company offering a cloud-based 3D-modeling tool to help users (primarily in Grades 4-6) to have fun learning math, computational thinking, and coding through visualization and 3D printing. Sol Menashi (STEM educator and former program manager of the DARPA BlocksCAD project) and Jenny Yoder (principal developer of the BlocksCAD software), co-founded the company last year to help educators and students use this technology.
The company will host a five-day BlocksCAD Workshop, 9AM-Noon, July 9-13, at Arts at the Armory (191 Highland Ave., Somerville). Participants will have fun, learn coding and design skills, and take home two 3D prints of their own design. The cost is $300. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 413-682-6745.
