Student Endorsements

“I just like that it’s sort of real world so we get some experience on what we would do if we were to join a [construction] company.”

“I felt like I was the important one, teaching them about my life. I was shy, but I tried to hold it back. I liked making them laugh. It was fun.”

“My favorite part about SketchUp is, well, everything about it. I like the teachers, the friends, everything… There’s a lot of interesting things about SketchUp: the tools and making animation scenes.”

“We are just working together in friendly competition. It’s a friendly feud. We have the same idea, but we want to push each other to do better. We are just friends and we will make our designs better by pushing ourselves.”
