3D Designing Site

This web site is all about designing. It was made to teach kids about how things are designed and gives you a chance to design a few things yourself--in the "design" section. The challenges include a personal explorer pod, or PEP, with a course you have to navigate it through. Or try designing your own logo or watch.

The "discover" section lets you discover real world designs from baggy pants to big buildings to high tech toilets and stories from the people that design them. It also shows just how a concept like a tree house goes from idea to actual use. The "discuss" section is a series of discussion boards that allow you to brainstorm on topics like making your hometown better or a dream gadget.

For this week in geek, I'm Mark Avery.
