Christy ’24 Brings Center for Innovation to Life with 3D Model

Bolles senior Hailey Christy ’24 worked with upper school instructional technology specialist Gloria Wood to design a 3D model of the Center for Innovation, currently under construction on the Upper School San Jose Campus.  

Christy taught herself how to use a new program called Fusion 360 to design the 3D model from scratch, based solely on the 2D renderings of the 47,000-square-foot, three-story building. She printed the design using the School’s 3D printer with help from Wood.

“Hailey is a curious, responsible, exceptionally helpful young lady,” Wood said. “She spent countless hours learning how to use the Fusion 360 program in her free time and on the weekends. We are immensely grateful to her for sharing her talents with the School community – whether taking on extra projects like this 3D model or filming on-campus activities as co-president of the Video Production Club.”

Christy’s model sits on the desk of Bolles President and Head of School Tyler Hodges, who shows the figure to students, families and alumni who visit his office. The scaled-down structure has helped Hodges and administrators communicate the building design as they discuss the impact it’s poised to make for students studying science, technology, mathematics and more. Construction on the Center for Innovation is projected to finish in Spring 2024. Learn more here.
