Scalable Game Design Summer Institute Promotes STEM Education!
Our 2012 Summer Institute for Teachers in June was a roaring success for the iDreams Project and kickoff for CE21! Check out our facebook photo album here.
Our mission was to build the world’s easiest-to-use 3D game design and programming tool. Are existing 3D tools too daunting? No programming background? No problem! Create amazing 3D shapes, build sophisticated 3D worlds and behavior through conversational programming and share them instantly as HTML5 apps.
Creativity3D is based on three revolutionary innovations:
Inflatable Icons: Draw 2D images and turn them into beautiful 3D shapes with our patented inflatable icon process.
Gentle Slope 3D: Develop advanced spatial reasoning skills! Start with the creation of 2D worlds and gradually turn them into sophisticated 3D.
Conversational Programming: Go beyond drag and drop programming! Use the full power of your computer to actually help you to compose working programs.
AgentSheets & AgentCubes are revolutionary tools that let you create your own games and simulations. Users of all ages can build games, interactive demonstrations, modifiable simulations, and more! Discover a new relationship to technology as you quickly CREATE games and computational science applications with all sorts of multi-media, and SHARE your creations online.
AgentSheets rule-based, drag-and-drop interface is easy to learn and hard to outgrow! Our users range from school districts to NASA scientists; city planners to clinical psychiatrists; middle school teachers to university professors, and students of all ages!
