French Students Excel in STEM Education with Support from SolidWorks VAR CadWare


Before Science, Technology, Education and Math (STEM) became a well used acronym in US education, French students learned to use SolidWorks as a visualization tool in order to understand concepts in simple machines, laws of physics, mathematics, and how things work.  In middle school and high school usually there is not a SolidWorks CAD class directly, instead students use SolidWorks to explore areas of science and technology.  Now SolidWorks is used for the national Baccalauréat (or BAC), the french high school exam required for post secondary studies.   At the university level, engineering students with this strong modeling and analysis background excel in competitions.  For example, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Technologies Industrielles des Mines d'Alès won the most sustainable design prize at both the 2011 French and European Shell Eco Marathon. 

With over 5,500 middle schools and over 2,200 technical and vocational schools, training centers, engineering schools and Higher Education and Universities, SolidWorks French Value Added Reseller, CADWARE is a major partner for educational institutions for modeling software and 3D simulation used in classrooms and for construction technology.
