SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids makes many aspects of the engineering process accessible to children. Whether it’s designing and making, applying principles of mechanics, or just inspiring creativity, the collection of apps will teach and engage children as young as four. Children can create and make anything they can think of using the apps. With Capture It, they can take pictures with their phone or tablet and start their design adventure by arranging the captured images, adding text, and drawing. Shape It allows them to easily shape their ideas into 3D creations of any form. Then, in Style It, they can decorate their creations with colors, backgrounds, and stickers. Mech It lets them make mechanical contraptions that move or amazing spiral art. With Print It, children can print their creations in 2D or make their designs come to life using a 3D printer. As SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids grows, new tools will help educators deliver high-quality learning curricula and continue to inspire and engage children in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and STEAM (adding art into the mix). Teachers can take a tour of the app tutorials in the video gallery.
