[Bf-education] Fun ways to teach Blender 3D

Maybe it's an idea to also think about what aides can help in a classroom.

I mean, how about having some balls or cubes made of different materials to
pass around so people can look at the difference between specularity setups
in the real world... some real nice real world stuff. Good to have them in
the same colour too...

Does a little stick figure really help? I tend to just act stuff out myself
in front of classes (and look like a weirdo of course).

What subjects do we run into again and again that are hard to convey?

I'm sure we can come up with a series of useful things that make life in the
classroom easier/more fun.
