I was asked to present 3D design software to teenagers at age of 13-20.
That will be an intro to 8 weeks Solidworks course organized by local "knowledge center". I will also be present at further classes.
They teachers asked me how to encourage pupils, so they get more interested in 3d design and Solidworks. Only 6 from 30 finished the last course. The rest found it not interesting. I simply think that children are spoiled these days but maybe the problem is on educator's side.The Center hasaccess to 3d fdm printer and small hsm mill center. Last time children could get their models done and they had a contest whose car will be faster at the hill.
I am looking for some ideas, presentations I could use for this purpose. I have looked at Solidworks education video but there is too much focus on solidworks details. This video will be good for next lesson or as a homework to watch it. We would like to tell why people shall love 3d design software and why is it so good to be able to use it. I have an idea to tell them to use blueprints in order to design a sportscar or some consumer goods, kind of reversed engineering.
I need to prepare something over the weekend. I will appreciate if you could come up with some ideas, presentations etc.
