The power to connect with the 3D world involves thinking in 3D and harnessing the emerging technologies and devices that build and embody our ideas. Thinking in 3D is a leap we all need to take to envision, create, and develop in this new world. This talk will overview some of the ways in which we can extend these design skills to more students were are interested in taking this leap!
