Great Events to Celebrate Engineering with SolidWorks and Students

WPI FIRST Regional Ball in Air

The SolidWorks community is always looking for a great event to celebrate engineering and design.  There are local user group meetings held through the SolidWorks User Group network.   Once a year,  it is SolidWorks World.

But this weekend, there are FIRST robot events happening all over the US and Canada.  There may be one near where you live.  The events showcase great designs and the work of talented high school students.  They are free to attend and children are welcome.  The full list of events from now until the end of April are at here.  If you can’t attend, many of the events are in a webcast on Friday and Saturday.
