Autodesk offers design software to schools everywhere free of charge

Earlier this year, Autodesk gave middle and high school students in the US its software suite as part of President Obama's ConnectEd project. As of today though, the design-minded outfit is offering its wares, like AutoCAD and Fusion 360, for education use worldwide. The company says this will afford 680 million students the ability to tap it into its apps both in classrooms and at home. As you might expect, project ideas and teaching resources are available as well. If you're looking to opt in, you'll need to request access, and you can do that right here.
