(3D-Girls Really Enjoy Engineering and Science)
“From Impossible to I’m Possible”
3DGREES field trip

3D-GREES is an innovative practicum experience for girls at Douglas Byrd High School meant to expose girls to 3D technology and to boost student achievement and attendance. This program is also meant to provide each young lady with a set of skills that will allow them to compete globally for high-tech jobs upon graduation from high school. By learning this innovative 3D technology, they won’t just be consuming technology, they will soon be defining it, creating it and sharing it with people of different industries. With a commitment from a North Carolina education partner, the ladies will create real-world solutions to real-world problems and will keep a digital portfolio of their work that they can carry with them on a job site and can use as additional credentials on a college application. 3D-GREES will meet one Saturday a month for 4 hours and the girls will create 3D simulations using 3DsMax design software, Unity 3D and Cubify Sculpt software design. Students are also required to attend school with no unexcused absences during the month between sessions and make satisfactory academic progress in their classes during the school day. We want them to be successful both in class and after school.  This skill-set will make them a highly coveted commodity in the workplace. We want them “First in Line for Their Future”.

The 3D-Gree girls of Douglas Byrd High School were exposed to a new technique called Mud Box. They received expert instructions on the Mud Box technique from David Joyner, a FTCC instructor and a graduate of Douglas Byrd High School. Check out our NEW VIDEO!!!

3D GREES is the girls technology group here at Douglas Byrd High School and they have learned
how to create in 3D using 3D design software that we have right here in the school. 

The goal of this program is actually 3 fold:
1. To increase student achievement and attendance
2. To prepare the young ladies with a set of unique skills that will allow them to be globally
     competitive in a high-tech society.
3. To connect students with industry partners for internships, mentorship, and collaboration.
