Remember that the winning teams (one in Animation and the other in 3D Design) will each receive two scholarships to Autodesk University 2010 (AU) – one for a student and the other for a team mentor or coach. Autodesk University is the premier global education, training and networking event for Autodesk customers, combining a deep–learning environment with a mix of professional and social activities. Education classes at AU help current and future engineers and designers learn not only how to use specific Autodesk technology, but also how to use that technology in the context of the design process with high-level design concepts like digital prototyping and sustainability to solve problems, drive innovation, exploit creativity, and make a positive impact in the world. Autodesk University will be held November 30 – December 2 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
