For Educators

"Educators have plenty of opportunities at SIGGRAPH to engage in discussions in Birds of a Feather sessions and a special Educators Forum on Sunday. Topics include teaching of virtual-reality technologies, cross-campus collaborations, the maker movement in formal education, game-production pipelines, and current tools for teaching graphics programming.  And throughout the week, a variety of Courses encourage educators to explore 3D printing, WebGL, the principles of augmented reality, stereo haptics, and more."
