Lesson Plan: Overview of Course & Technology Tools

Stemlogo This lesson provides an overview to the SolidWorks – STEM online course. The course supports teachers developing their 3D skills in SolidWorks while applying theoretical concepts in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum. Basic math, algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus based exercises explore concepts in life science, chemistry, physics and engineering principles. 

Once you complete your lessons and the elearning tutorials, submit a lesson of your own to the SolidWorks-STEM community.  Download the SolidWorks-Lesson-Template.doc and email the completed lesson to SolidWorks STEM Coordinator, cmorse2@solidworks.com.

    Were do you find the “SolidWorks Web Lecture (online)

    SolidWorks lectures are on the SolidWorks Curriculum and Courseware CD. The SolidWorks Teachers Guide is in pdf format and contains the 11 lectures.

    1. Where do you find the template to submit a lesson plan?
    2. I was unable to find the file needed for the online tutorial for Lesson 11. I tried several different ways:

    Click here to open oil_pump.sldasm or browse to

    From the main page

    I am trying to send my solidworks-STEM lesson plans using edrawings. My assumption is that I send as a .html document. Each time I select send, a notice occurs indicating that the microsoft exchange server is not available. (?) My email server is working. Is there something I need to do to configure edrawings with my internet server?

    Save the eDrawing to a folder and then email the eDrawing document as an attachment.

    I have been selected as one of the recipients of your STEM grant and would like to submit my lesson plan. How do I do this? I have completed the course and I have completed this lesson plan according to your template. I have also created a simple SolidWorks file to submit with the lesson plan. Please let me know how I should submit these files.

    Does anyone have any statistical data on how STEM programs have benefited from Solidworks or CAD in general? I am looking for quantitative information that I can use to show the benefits of 3D CAD.

    I would like to take a Solidworks course here in Los Angeles. Does anyone have contact information for professors out here? Thanks.

    Could you contact me with regard to the woodenclock plans on this site.
    I may have agreed to you using the plans but was not expecting you to give away the model files, I sell these files from the website and this is putting a dent in my income now that I am retired.
