Helping students with design using Splat 3D
Students often have trouble putting their design ideas on paper, especially when it comes to creating designs that need to functionally fit together for a STEM project. We chat with award-winning designer Kylie Burrett as she talks about how the Splat 3D tool she created is helping students of all ages master design concepts.
Kylie Burrett is a passionate educator and an award-winning designer. As the creator of the powerfully simple Splat, a 3D design tool, Kylie’s mission is to help make engineering design in the classroom easy and impactful.
