Dassault Systèmes Headlines American Society for Engineering Education Annual Teachers Workshop

Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced its support and participation in the American Society for Engineering Education’s (ASEE) 11th annual Engineering in K-12 Classrooms Teachers Workshop.

As part of the workshop, which is being held Saturday, June 14, in Indianapolis, Ind., in conjunction with ASEE 121st Annual Conference and Exposition, the director of Dassault Systèmes’ Global Learning & PLM Academy, Xavier Fouger, will deliver the opening keynote address. Dassault Systèmes participation in the event builds upon a decade long relationship between the two organizations and also includes three separate hands-on sessions:

Tying STEM Together with Manufacturing from Child to Adult
8:15 a.m.
Teachers will explore hands-on engineering design projects in SOLIDWORKS that can bring fun, relevant exploration into the classroom by applying math and science with manufacturing principles. Attendees will also be introduced to an integrated STEM course for high school students developed by Ivy Tech.

Hands-on Experience in Collaborative Engineering Design and Manufacturing to Inspire Tomorrow’s Engineers
10:45 a.m.
In this workshop, teachers will design and simulate simple electromechanical systems using CATIA and Lego Mindstorms kits that contain software and hardware to create customizable, programmable robots. Attendees will have the chance to manipulate 3D models and even print them in 3D.

Create Your Own Interactive 3D Digital Learning Applications in an Hour
1:30 p.m.
This workshop empowers teachers to easily combine various types of existing 3D data into exciting interactive learning scenarios. Attendees will learn how to create their own application and will receive a free license of SOLIDWORKS Composer, technology that can be used to create 3D courses in any discipline.

“It’s extremely important to foster interest in science, technology, engineering and math at a young age, but to do that we need to empower our teachers with the resources they need. This includes access to advanced technology that the next generation will actually be using when they enter the workforce,” said Xavier Fouger. “This is exactly the reason why Dassault Systèmes is committed to supporting excellent programs like those run by ASEE; to help kick-start the minds and careers of tomorrow’s innovators.”

Representatives from Dassault Systèmes will be available to discuss and demonstrate its solutions at the 121st ASEE Annual conference and exposition, June 15-18 in Indianapolis, Ind. at booth #2013.
