"Google SketchUp <http://sketchup.google.com/> is a 3D modeling
software application that is used extensively by schools worldwide.
Although there is a free version of SketchUp, there is also a Pro
version which is typically a product schools pay for. Google's new
SketchUp Pro Statewide K-12 Licensing Grant is now being offered to all
states within the USA who want to provide an opportunity for their
schools to use this valuable tool, at no cost to anyone. This is now
available to NH schools.
SketchUp Pro is used in many subject areas
