This is a presentation of a project in progress at Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. The ultimate goal of this project is a computerized environment integrated in a program for learning and teaching 3D Geometry in high schools, focusing on the morphology of solids. 3D Geometry is an area of mathematics that most country's curricula almost totally neglect, yet it is of utmost importance due to its applicability to other mathematical areas, to many professions, to the arts and to daily life
