SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids at Science Festivals, STEM Events, Maker Faires and Libraries

SOLIDWORKS Apps For Kids, a collection of creative free apps for fun STEM/STEAM learning,  is out of the classroom and into learning spaces under a tent, at a faire, or in a library.  SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids Creator is great for kids ages 4-14 with a simple parent signup and SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids Classroom helps teacher, parents, librarians, STEM coordinators and Summer Camp leaders develop activities with web-based apps and output to paper printers and 3D printers too.

WPI Touch Tomorrow

The SOLIDWORKS R&D team actively participated in Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s (WPI) Touch Tomorrow STEM/STEAM event  – to a sold out crowd of 6000+ kids and parents.  Thank you R&D for showing our youngest designers, makers and future engineers the fun you can have with “cubie print” for robots, rabbits and racecars.
