Dassault Systemes on Wednesday introduced Cosmic Blobs Lab Pack, a special version of their 3D software for kids developed specifically for educational institutions. Developed for Mac OS X and Windows, the Lab Pack will be available beginning in April at special pricing for schools through resellers.
Dassault describes Cosmic Blobs as “digital modeling clay for children.” Aimed at kids ages 7 to 14, Cosmic Blob lets you create 3D characters and objects, decorate and animate them. The company has also produced expansion packs with pre-made models and scenery.
The Lab Pack makes it easier for school IT staff to install and manage — it includes client management and concurrent-usage license features. What’s more, Dassault has set up a Cosmic Blobs Education Web site, with downloadable lesson plans and other content for educators.
