Rhino in Education

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:
