Blocksmith for Education

Our 21st-century approach to education is actively used by homeschoolers, in schools and in STEM camps nationwide. It offers a highly accessible path for students to learn about 3D modeling, animations and programming, before starting with advanced programs like Unity3D and Unreal.

“I knew we had something in Blocksmith when our 3-5th graders quickly began building their own 3D creations after 20 minutes of being introduced to the program. We heard lots of oohs and wows!
We saw students sharing with each other how they built racing cars, sky-high buildings and other unique 3D scenes.
As an educator, I like how Blocksmith facilitates students creating as opposed to being relatively passive consumers of information. This is a big hit with the kids!”
“I also like how much the girls are into doing this! We very much encourage them to get involved in this as much as they can, and not think of it as a "boy" thing. I want them to love it at whatever level they want!”

Strong tie-in with AR and VR

VR/AR devices are not necessary to run Blocksmith, but supporting them is a core feature of our system. When used in schools, they greatly enhance how students experience their work.

"We were supposed to build motorized Lego cars today. We were going to come back to Blocksmith in two weeks. The kids groaned. They wanted to continue building and making games, see them in VR. So we will do cars later and continue with Blocksmith!”

Scott Slonim, Blaine County School District
