Ashlar-Vellum and Girlstart
Ashlar-Vellum supports Girlstart, an organization that empowers middle school girls in math, science and technology. Girlstart engages, educates and motivates girls to achieve the knowledge and confidence to participate in advanced math and science classes and future careers.
Ashlar-Vellum donated 26 seats of Argon 3D modeling software to be used as part of their Dream Spaces summer camp program. A modeling tutorial was created especially for the girls that includes wire frame construction of a vase, application of materials, rendering, and creation of an animated movie. Click here to see some of their designs in our Gallery.
We look forward to growing new users as these young women learn the joy of design. See what other great things these girls are doing at www.girlstart.com.
