The dinosaurs may be extinct, but digital technologies are evolving to help bring them back to life – come along and create your own 3D dinosaur model these school holidays!
Using the well-known 3D software Blender, create your own 3D dinosaur similar to those on display in the Dinosaurs of Patagonia exhibition.
Participants in this full-day workshop will learn to:
- Create a 3D model
- Extrude, stretch and rotate faces, vertices and edges
- UV unwrap (the very basics of how)
- Texture paint their models
- Render their model as an image in Blender
- Export their model as a viewable file format
Please note that all equipment required will be provided. Participants should also bring a water bottle and a packed lunch.
Drop and leave programs
Drop and leave programs enable juniors to experience the Museum independently, discover and learn something new in an area of interest and access materials and resources that would not normally be available at home. All programs are managed and monitored by our experienced Learning and Engagement staff.
