a place to shine a light on the work of students and teachers
Jump in with a couple of students and turn them loose on the links, documents, videos, files, etc. They will find something to connect them to Grasshopper.
Google: Grasshopper3d video tutorials
Explore some of these videos to see what you can do with GH. Work along with a video. Utilize the 'Pause' when viewing the video. Again, there might a tutorial 'out there' that will grab a student's attention.
My favorite: Digital Toolbox
Click the 'Grasshopper' link on the toolbar. Then choose 'Basic' to get started with some very user friendly videos:

This is a very good video to follow along, use the pause button, and work your own model with Brian as he constructs this project.
Three models, definitions, and videos for 'Getting Started' with Grasshopper: (old but very good. No sound. Pause and work along. by McNeel Miami)
3 GH Lamp model and definition notes in the model (no video yet)
Grasshopper video tutorial YouTube video tutorial by Adam Lucking. Too long (over 30 minutes) but very good.
Below.... food for thought:
