    Anyone been using this with kids and if so how has it gone?
    Does anyone have links to any video tutorials they have found online that are good, I know there are a lot out there but wondered if anyone had discovered any gems...

    Another not so helpful response but just to say that three of my S4s (Y11) used Blender for their final project and all managed to produce something decent by following video tutorials and experimenting. Two of them were working together and one on his own. The two together made a "Perry the Platipus" whilst the lone student was working on a mountain bike which he didn't finish in the time available.

     
  7. Very much an extension / G&T / after school type of activity IMO. I've done a few things, shown a few kids a few things, but it's the kind of application that sucks vast quantities of time away and you'll only get something out of it if you really get into it and beat that learning curve. It is very nice though, just perhaps not suited to Y8...
