  • I haven’t had much time to dedicate to 3D for Kids this year, but in April I had the pleasure of conducting a workshop for Greensburg’s Cub Scouts Pack 418.   We did something new in this particular workshop: the kids were given 2D digital cameras and were asked to shoot 3D pictures, using the […]

  • If you’re interested in creating modern computer animation (a la Frozen, Toy Story, etc.), Blender is a free, very powerful tool for the job. You can use Blender to create beautiful images: Despite this program being free and very powerful, Blender has a notoriously steep learning curve. To help people get started with using Blender […]

  • This past Friday, I had the privilege of teaching some 5th and 6th graders at Hillcrest Intermediate School about 3D. This was part of Mrs. Giran’s gifted STEM program, and it was a blast. I met at least two kids who use Blender, the notoriously difficult (but ridiculously powerful) 3D computer graphics program that I’ve […]

  • Last Saturday, I conducted a 3D for Kids workshop at the Ligonier Valley Library. Here’s some video and pictures from the day. Make sure to wear your red/cyan 3D glasses (with the red lens over the left eye) in order to see these in 3D! Thanks to the nice folks at the Ligonier Valley Library […]

  • A big thanks to Nicole Chynoweth from The Ligonier Echo for writing a really nice story about the 3D for Kids workshops. Click here to read the article!     As a reminder, I’ll be conducting a 3D for Kids workshop on Saturday, August 16 at 11 AM at the Ligonier Valley Library. This is the […]

  • Yesterday was a fun day at the Greensburg Hempfield Area Public Library. We had an enthusiastic group of kids, some of which were accomplished actors: Although everyone was courteous and well-behaved, we had the occasional bit of chaos: Afterward, some folks hammed it up in front of the 3D camera: Even some of the folks […]

  • YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE!! While the 3D for Kids event at the Greensburg Hempfield Area Library is still happening this coming Wednesday (July 30, 2014), it appears that we are SOLD OUT (i.e. we are at capacity). It’s very likely that parents will not be able to participate, as there are close to 50 kids who […]

  • Last Thursday, I conducted two 3D for Kids workshops at the Norwin Public Library in Irwin, PA. Here’s some 3D pictures we took with a regular 2D camera: We had some exceptionally good reactions to the scary 3D dinosaur: We also had some infectious giggles — especially from the girl on the right: Some of […]

  • Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of visiting the Penn Area Library in Harrison City, PA. Look how calm all the kids look there! They were all so friendly, attentive, and nice until… I’ve had hundreds of kids throw paper at me at these workshops, but I’ve never been attacked with such vicious glee! Well, […]

  • Here’s a fun compilation of 3D for Kids audiences throwing paper at me over the past year. You’ll need red/cyan 3D glasses with the red filter over the left eye in order to see this properly.

  • If you’re not using Firefox or Internet Explorer, you’ll probably experience problems viewing 3D videos with the YouTube 3D player on your browser. This problem has existed for months, and it appears YouTube isn’t interested in fixing it. As a result, I’ve converted all of the videos on 3DforKids.net to anaglyph red/cyan 3D videos. They […]

  •   A good time was had by all at the Jeannette Public Library last Thursday. Here’s a couple videos from that day. Like the photo above, you’ll need red/cyan 3D glasses (red lens over your left eye) to see the videos in 3D: Thanks to the friendly folks at the Jeannette Public Library for hosting […]

  • Normally, I conduct 3D workshops for kids. However, every now and then I have an adult audience. Last Monday was one of those occasions, where I conducted a workshop for the teachers at ASSET STEM Education. Here’s a 3D picture that was taken with a regular 2D camera: We did many of the same activities […]

  • A great time was had yesterday at the Pittsburgh International Children’s Festival. There was a 3D for Kids table in the Spark Remake Learning tent, which had a glasses-free 3D monitor, 3D toys, and supplies for making 3D drawings. When I conduct the 3D for Kids workshops, I allocate about five minutes to allow the […]

I’ll be sharing a […]

  • I had the pleasure of visiting the Elizabeth Forward Middle School last Wednesday to conduct five 3D for Kids workshops. You’ll need your red/cyan 3D glasses to view these pictures and videos. I taught the kids how to use a regular 2D camera to make 3D photos. The trick with doing this is that everyone […]

  • We had a blast at the Adams Memorial Library in Latrobe, PA last weekend! This is a 3D picture that was taken with a single 2D camera. Use your red/cyan 3D glasses to view this (red lens over the left eye). Everyone remained very, very still while I took two pictures, approximately 2-1/2 inches apart. […]

  • Welcome to the 3D for Kids web site! I decided that, after a successful year of conducting 3D for Kids workshops, it was time to split out the workshops from The Simple Carnival’s web site. So now there’s www.3dforkids.net. That’s this web site that you’re looking at. 🙂 This is where I’ll be posting 3D […]
