There used to be SolidWorks Engineering Stimulus Package which has ended long back. But I'm sure if you take to a local VAR or SWUGN in your area, they should be able to help you.

Welcome to the forum.
You best bet would be to checkout the system requirements portion of the portal.
That will give you at least a general idea of how close you are.
Then I would contact the closest reseller to where you live and talk to them about
maybe demoing it. But generally you have to purchase a license in order to down load it.
