Are you looking for a systematic approach to K-12 engineering? Then, join the dialog with the Engineering Pipeline. This award-winning, innovative program involves over 1,000 K-12 students in real-world, international engineering projects with the aid of post-secondary and industry mentors. Attendees will learn about real-world P-12 engineering design projects, P-12 collaboration with industry and post-secondary institutions, and developing strong partnerships.
This session presents a philosophy for assessing engineering drawings. Based on this, it outlines an automated approach using the SOLIDWORKS API to extract information from the drawing and solid model. This is developed into a procedure to assess and mark a large number of student drawings. Attendees will engage in a discussion of how engineering drawings can be assessed in an automated way. They will see how the SOLIDWORKS API can be a useful tool without too much knowledge of Visual Basic. They will be able to discuss how these ideas can be beneficial without impacting their learning objectives.
Calling all educators – both professional and volunteer! Are you ready to introduce design principles to children in a fun way? Come see how Apps for Kids Classroom allows you to quickly set up a secure environment in which children can unleash their imaginations. Attendees will learn about the apps DS SolidWorks is building to inspire kids to become the leaders of tomorrow in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM).
