Hi all,
I volunteered in the past five years or so teaching Blender in Italy, 
mostly to university and high school students (14-30 years old). I'd be 
very interested in hosting a "blender bootcamp" at my university. I work 
at a physics department, and I've always tried to convince my colleagues 
and students to use Blender to explain to the wide audience their works, 
seminars, results, etc..
Just as an example, I used blender to depict (not necessarily accurate) 
what happened during the famous event of the detected gravitational 
wave. Here is the result:


In order to propose it to my university board, I'd like to have more 
informations on how to organize it. Could you give me some?
