This course will introduce students to SolidWorks, a 3D solid modeling package that allows users to develop full solid models in a simulated environment for both design and analysis. Students can use SolidWorks to sketch ideas and experiment with different designs to create 3D models, and then analyze the performance of these models. SolidWorks is used worldwide across many disciplines by students, designers, engineers, and other professionals to produce simple and complex parts, assemblies, and drawings. The complicated models generated from SolidWorks can be printed directly using 3D printing. Students will learn that many objects around us, from bottles and pens to cars and buildings, were designed using this type of interactive 3D software. No experience is required.
Note: This class is designed for middle school students. The Sally Ride Science Junior Academy courses are designed to inspire young adults to pursue careers in STE[+a]M.
