And now, for a word from Google

Learn more about the Sketch-A-Space competitionHey, get this: Google’s SketchUp Evangelist Aidan Chopra has published a blog post about the Sketch-a-Space design competition Patricia Wright blogged about here last week!

The Sketch-A-Space Competition invites both pros and amateurs to use Google SketchUp to design spaces for people with autism. From Aidan’s post:

Qualities of light, color, pattern, sound and other factors are critical to all good design; when it comes to design for people on the autism spectrum, this is doubly true. Some folks who are on the autism spectrum have environmental sensitivities that can have a profound effect on their ability to make use of a space. Understanding these sensitivities and creating spaces that accommodate them is what Sketch-a-Space is all about.

The post explains that contestants can enter in any one of four categories:

  • Youth with Autism: individuals with autism age 13-17
  • Adult with Autism: individuals with autism age 18 and over
  • Youth: individuals without autism age 13-17
  • Adult: individuals without autism age 18 and over

Towards the end of his post, Aidan hints that he is one of the judges For the competition. You’ll soon be hearing about this exciting competition from another judge. Stay tuned to this blog.
