VPython is a programming environment that enables even novices to write programs that produce navigable real-time 3D animations. One to two hours of carefully crafted instruction is sufficient to bring novice students to the point of being able to do serious computer modeling (http://www.matterandinteractions.org). VPython is based on the Python programming language (http://python.org) which has a large user community. Like Python, VPython is open source freeware available for Windows, Linux, and Macintosh (http://vpython.org). Workshop participants will learn to write 3D programs.
