Blender Campers: These are the notes we will be working through. You don't need to print these (thank goodness -- 374 pages!), but we will follow along with them. The "Very Brief Blender Notes" (below) will also be helpful.

Here's notes on some other fun things:
Scratch notes -- drag and drop programmiung with animation and sound, and even some game development
SketchUp notes -- who would have ever guessed it was so easy to draw in 3D?
ParaView -- Interactive 3D Visualization
TinkerCAD notes -- this is really good if you want to make models that can be 3D-printed
Game Maker notes -- develop your own 2D game with collisions and sound
Processing notes -- serious graphics programming
