APCU Meetings Calendar

Mar 25, 2017 - Schaumburg Library Hanover Park Branch
This month's meeting is at a different location.
Video: none
Speaker: Ben Weaver
Topic: Windmills, Olympics, Halloween; An Intro to 3D Real World Simulations

Bennett Weaver will give a demonstration of modeling real world objects in the computer with easy to use browser based 3D simulation software.

Why do events and objects in the real world look and act the way they do? By looking at the pieces, it is easy to construct and manipulate models to explain and demonstrate how the physical world behaves. This can be done by kids, students and adults for fun or as a way of understanding real world happenings.

Bennett Weaver has been professionally involved with computers in a varied career since 1968. He built his first personal computer in 1978 and has made seemingly countless ones ever since.
